Could anyone tell me what this little guy is ?
Common enough and seen plenty of them, this one was in about 6 meters off S/W Ireland.

Its a Skeleton Shrimp not sure of the species though. Don't know how many native species there are around Ireland but there is an
introduced one that originates from Japan, Caprella mutica.

gpaulay, I'm thinking you could be right with the 'gammarid amphipod' ID, the side view looks very much like I remember too.
Jim, Because of my memory of the side view I'm not convinced it's a 'Caprella mutica' however I think it's spot on for another question I had in the picture below.
Many thanks to you both, Gary.
