The Bubble Coral Shrimp (Vir philippinensis) is a marine shrimp species that was first described in 1984. They are found from the Red Sea to the Indo-Pacific including Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines. This shrimp is nearly transparent and has purplish or bluish lines while hiding within the pseudo-tentacles of the Bubble Coral.
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.
