mantis shrimp question

19 March 2017 - 02:26 PM

Hello,

 

doubtlessly this is a boxing mantis shrimp, but which species?

It was a bit smaller than Odontodactylus scyllarus (Peacock Mantis Shrimp) - the photos were made at Lembeh.

 

Does anybody have an idea?

Thanks in advance!

 

Cheers,

Hello,

 

I have two images from the the same species and I'm struggling with the ID.

Both images were shot at Bali.

 

I'm considering Bryaninops amplus or Bryaninops yongei.

Is somebody familiar with this species?

Any help is appreciated!

 

Cheers,
