Metanephrops gen. nov. (Typusart Nephrops japonicus Tapparone Canefri, 1873) wird für elf rezente Indo-West-pazifische und zwei amerikanische Hummerarten, sowie für die neue fossile Art Metanephrops motttnauensis aus dem oberen Pliozän Neuseelands errichtet. Die rezenten Arten wurden früher zu Nethrops Leach, 1814 (Typusart Cancer norvegicus Linnaeus, 1758) gestellt. Sie unterscheiden sich aber wesentlich von dieser Gattung durch die reduzierte Zahl der Dornen des Rostrums, die Anwesenheit kräftig bedornter subparalleler, postrostraler Furchen, den stark vergrösserten antennalen Dorn, die Entwicklung eines zusätzlichen Paares von Längsfurchen am hinteren Teil des Karapax, die breitere Antennenschuppe und die Abwesenheit von ausgesprochener Heterochelie. M. motunauensis steht zwischen den "japonicus" und "arafarensis "Gruppen von De Man (1916) und späteren Autoren. Die Verbreitung und vermutliche stammesgeschichtliche Verwandtschaft der Arten von Metanephrops wird besprochen.
