I saw this same guy in Bali (Tulamben).  After a three year fruitless search for his name, I just called him (her?) "Undescribed Saron Shrimp."  Good luck.  I hope someone can identify your image.

Thanks Karen,
whitout a doubt your picture is the same specie.
In my search on internet so far I only found a few other pictures that look similar,
work for specialists to put a name on the little felow ...

I am the photographer of the image mentioned on #3 .

I also searched for the name of this guy, Someone in a "critter Id" Facebook Group  came out with this name, 

I certainly can't guarantee this is exact but just looking at the critter "Mole shrimp" seems quite adequately descriptive.


Pls have a look at my Flickr photo gallery and leave a comment.
