The Common Hairy Shrimp (Phycocaris simulans) can be found at numerous dive sites around Romblon Island. This species comes in in various colors from a dark brown to a complete white appearance. It is a small crustacean of around 1 cm and can be found often in the shallow waters. An easy way to recognize the common hairy shrimp is by looking at the hairs surrounding the eyes. They seem to always match the body color.
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.
