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.

lebbeus family looks similar: 

 

 

identifying the coral first can also be the first step to the latin name as some are limited to certain coral species.

Here's mine from Romblon, it's color true so stripes is a bit more yellow/greenish than Alex's. On the same (perhaps) Tubastrea Coral too so probably the same species.
