My dive guide showed me these shrimps at Nudi Retreat. I am sure others have photographed them too. But I am struggling to ID them. Any help appreciated. They were pretty small.

Hopefully they are common enough that someone knows what they are.

Thank you, Mike.  :notworthy:

 

I should have specified I was after the latin name.

Haha, I know, I was just being a dive guide, making up a name on the spot, we are good like that. Sorry, can't help.
