The Snowflake Hairy Shrimp (Phycocaris sp.) is a rare type of hairy shrimp and might be a new species. It is rather fluffy than hairy. It is almost all white like the common hairy shrimp, but the hairs around the eyes are red and it also has some distinct red markings and lines on the body. It is a beautiful and popular photo subject for underwater macro photographers coming to our resort.
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.
