This a shrimp I found at night in Grenada. I think it's in the newer Humann Reef Creature book, but I only have the last edition, which doesn't have it. I need the Latin name, if anyone knows it.
Thanks in advance!

Looks like a Red Night Shrimp (Cinetorhynehus manningi). I see those guys down here in the Keys on night dives too.

Yep, commonly found at the flower garden banks as well.
