Abstract: The Thai freshwater prawns of the genus Macrobrachium are reviewed. A taxonomic synopsis is given here of the 25 species of Macrobrachium so far known from Thailand, including three new species, namely M. thai, M. tratense and M. dolatum. Nine species are recorded for the first time from Thailand, namely M. amplimanus Cai and Dai, 1999, M. assamense (Tiwari, 1955), M. dienbienphuense Dang and Nyuyen, 1972, M. eriocheirum Dai, 1984, M. forcipatum Ng, 1995, M. hendersoni (De Man, 1906), M. malayanum (Roux, 1934), M. mieni Dang, 1975 and M. trompii (De Man, 1898). A neotype is designated for M. hirsutimanus (Tiwari, 1952). Descriptions for new species, diagnosis for newly recorded species and taxonomic discussions for all species are provided. A key to all the known Thai Macrobrachium species is included.
