Hello!  A keen dive guide at Misool Eco Resort spotted this minute shrimp jumping around sponge and hard corals with some tunicates and it appears to have a tunicate attached to its side.  This was much different than the wispy algae and hairy shrimps he had found previously but the same size.  

 

Does anyone know the species?  And if a new species, how does one go about submitting it to the scientific community for confirmation?

 

Terima Kasih!

Little is known about this shrimp. It's been seen on a fairly regular basis in Lembeh. We call it the 'Little Green Shrimp'
