Miner’s Urchin Shrimp (Gnathophylloides mineri) is also called Dwarf Urchin Shrimp and is close related to the bumblebee shrimp. They can be found on sea urchins in shallow waters at several dive sites around Romblon Island and are usually seen holding on to one of the spines of the sea urchin. This shrimp species often lives in pairs.
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.
