Neostylodactylus litoralis (Inshore Hairy Shrimp) is a fascinating shrimp that can usually be seen during night dives. It has three pairs of “filter arms” with fine hair, which are used to catch its tiny prey from the water. They come in various colors and color combinations from striking colors like to yellow and red to brown and beige tones. They are bigger than the shrimps in the Phycocaris genus, but the way they sometimes “wobble” through the reef and the moving arms make them a subject for patient underwater macro photographers.
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.
