As the name suggests the Common Xenia Coral Shrimp (Hippolyte commensalis, also known as Alcyonohippolyte commensalis) can be found Xenia corals. They often live in small groups of bigger and smaller shrimps. In comparison to related species they have a brown belt around their back. This species sometimes gets confused with the Striped Xenia Coral Shrimp (Alcyonohippolyte tenuicarpus).
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.
