Paul Rudder Usually in the indo-pacific region - This Emperor Shrimp (Periclimenes imperator) was far from home when I found it at a seldom dived site, Red Patch in Nelson Bay. Very happy with this hitch hiker of the sea! Canon G10 YS-27 strobe - INON Macro Lense. f/8 1/200 ISO 100 Ken Thongpila

Damian Hofman Very cool find!

Paul Rudder I had to look at it about 3 times cause I didnt believe what I was looking at all the way down here lol

Damian Hofman knowing how big those nudi's are this guy is tiny! I can see why you would have to look a few times!

Alistair Merrifield Wow - guess you will be diving that spot more often!

Paul Rudder Very lucky :)

Paul Rudder Haha - Dunno about that mate - Not much else there to write home about :)

Ken Thongpila Nice Find Paul :-) Amazing find. Nelson Bay is one of the best macro dive site in the world Paul. It is rare for Tropical water marine life found in Template water....

Jim Dodd Nice work Paul

Anna E Settimio Cipriani I took this picture during a night dive in Indonesia, most particularly the Pulau Waleabahi Island of Togian archipelago, Sulawesi.Two Emperors Shrimp (Periclimenes imperator) is a species of shrimp with a wide distribution across the Indo-Pacific. It lives commensally on a number of hosts, in this case on a Spanish dancer, scientific name Hexabranchus sanguineus is a dorid nudibranch, a very large and colorful sea slug, a marine opisthobranch gastropod mollusk in the family Hexabranchidae. ┬ęGiordano Cipriani

Manfred Keller Periclimenes imperator on Ceratosoma gracillimum - Puerto Galera (Philippines)

Lindz Warren Think it is more likely to be on a Ceratosoma gracillimum Semper in Bergh, 1876. Anyone else's thoughts?

Ron Silver Concur with ID as C. gracillimum
