The Cactus Shrimp (Pontonides maldivensis) is a commensal shrimp and was first found and described by Borradaile in 1915. It is not easy to spot them on their dark green host coral, but our experienced spotters can find them for you. It is a popular subject for underwater macro photography in Romblon Island.
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.
