The Japanese Dragon Shrimp (Anachlorocurtis commensalis) is a very rare crustacean, which was first found in Japan and can be found in the waters around Romblon Island. It has certain similarities to the common Dragon Shrimp, Miropandalus hardingi but instead of having thorns on their back they display the optical illusion of thorns within their transparent body. They can only be found in their black coral habitat.
