Crinoid Shrimp ID

Recommended Posts

Well I'm winding my way through stuff from the Solomons. I really got into looking for crinoid shrimps, and this was is really different. The claws are particularly interesting. Anyone know what it is?

Cheers,

Marli

It looks like pictures I've seen labelled Palaemonella pottsi. Good eye Marli - not the typical crinoid shrimp most people see.

Thanks, Leslie,

Interesting; I thought it looked like something different than I've found before.

Cheers,

Marli

I confused it with Periclimenes psamathe, obviously in the wrong place, until I saw the claws. On a night dive, it's hard enough to find anything this small, let alone know what it is at the time!

Cheers,

Marli
