840_029.jpg Here's a shrimp that I found on a Crimson anemone (Cribinopsis fernaldi) with Candy striped shrimp ( Lebbeus grandimanus)....looks like a Heptacarpus, but the location seems a bit unusual. Site: Broughton Archipelago, Northern Vancouver Island.
Any ideas out there??
Cheers,
Marli

Hi Marli - I'll let Art know you've got a shrimp for him. I don't think he's been checking the boards lately.
cheers, Leslie

Hi Marli
probably Hepotacarpus stimpsoni
Jensen (1995) says it is occasionally found on Urticina crassicornis

Thanks, Art,
That confirms what I thought it was.
