The Peacock-tail Anemone Shrimp (Ancylocaris brevicarpalis) has an almost translucent body. The shrimp has long transparent pincers with purple bars. Underwater macro photographers differentiate males and females by their size: females are often larger and more brightly marked and they have larger white spots on their backs. Female and male have the typical black-ringed orange eye-spots on their tail.
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.
