The penaeid shrimp, Parapenaeus investigatoris Alcock & Anderson, 1899 is widely distributed in the Indo-West Pacific. In the present study, the occurrence of this species was reported for the first time in Japanese waters, based on five male specimens collected in Kagoshima Bay, southern Japan, at 229-230 m depth, using a simple experimental trawl net. One live specimen of P. investigatoris was photographed, and the important morphological characters and body coloration of the live specimens were noted. Kagoshima Bay is now considered to be the northernmost locality in the known distribution of this species. La crevette pénéide Parapenaeus investigatoris Alcock & Anderson, 1899 est largement distribuée dans tout l'indo-ouest-pacifique. Cette étude signale, pour la première fois, sa présence dans les eaux japonaises, cinq spécimens mâles ont été collectés dans la baie de Kagoshima, dans le sud du Japon, à 229-230 m de profondeur, à l'aide d'un simple chalut expérimental. Un spécimen vivant de P. investigatoris a été photographié, les principaux caractères morphologiques et la couleur ont été notés. La baie de Kagoshima est dorénavant considérée comme la limite nordique de la répartition connue de cette espèce.
