I am still slogging through the thousands of 2009 images: life got in the way!

I thought when I photographed 'ol blue eyes here that it was Periclimenes sp., but now, the markings don't make sense. I've also looked at Vir euphyllius and Ischnopontia lophos, and the markings are close, but different: the legs are free of spots. Art, where are you?

Any ideas appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Marli

Hi Marli -- Art's on his way to Brazil I think. I'd go with Vir euphyllius. The white patches are internal organs which vary in size so they're not a useful character. It would be unusually pale for a euphyllius but intensity of color varies too and the host is certainly right for a Vir.
