The Freckled Hairy Shrimp (Phycocaris sp.) is highly variable in color, but it will always display unique markings in pink or purple at the edges of the abdominal segments and carapace, which helps to camouflage the shrimp between its algae habitat. They are so well blending in that it is very hard for untrained eyes to spot these shrimps. They also have red hairs around the eyes.
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.
