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.
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
