Blogie Robillo Spotted a tiny shrimp apparently living commensally on a crown-of-thorns seastar. Anybody know which species it is? Found it at Talikud Island, Philippines, in about 30ft of water.

Ron Silver Sea Star Shrimp, Periclimenes soror

Arne Kuilman Typical color for Periclimenes soror on crown of thorn.

Evette Swindale I managed to get a photo of one of these in Nuweiba, Egypt on a Crown of Thorns but it was more red due to its hosts colours

Blogie Robillo Oh so they live with a wide variety of starfish, I see. Thanks Ron!

Evette Swindale They also live on sea cucumbers

Arne Kuilman Easy to find in blue on blue Linckia seastars all over South-East Asia. (usually on the bottom underneath it's legs)

Blogie Robillo That's right, Arne, I often see them on those stars.

Blogie Robillo Whenever I see this shrimp, it's always on an azure sea star, and always in shallow waters (around 15m). It was less than a centimeter long, I guess. ID pls?

Jun V Lao imperial or emperor, same same but different lol

Blogie Robillo Yeah its general body shape is the same as the emperor's, I guess, but the colors --or lack of them-- are all wrong...

Ilan Ben Tov Periclimenes Soror

Blogie Robillo Thanks Ilan! Will look that up :)

Ilan Ben Tov Its common name is starfish shrimp and its colors varies according to the host starfish.
