The Pale Xenia Coral Shrimp (Alcyonohippolyte sp.) is the smallest soft coral associated shrimp we found in Romblon so far. They have a broader body than other soft coral associated species and are white to cream colored. These shrimp are perfectly camouflaged in their coral habitat and can be found in the reefs around Romblon Island.
