Two new species of penaeid shrimps, Pseudodrobna kenngotti n. gen., n. sp. and Dusa reschi n. sp., are described from the Upper Jurassic Solnhofen Lithographic Limestones of Schernfeld near Eichstätt (Eichstätt Member, Lower Tithonian, Hybonotum Zone). Pseudodrobna kenngotti n. gen., n. sp. differs from other genera of penaeideans primarily in the shape and armature of the rostrum. Dusa reschi n. sp. distinguishes from other members of the genus Dusa mainly in the armature of the rostrum in combination with the shape of the chelae of the third and second pereiopods.
