Phenacovolva rehderi

Cate, 1973


Kati Burg Tiny squat lobster next to Phenacovolva rehderi (?), at 15m, Romblon Island, Philippines. ID(s) please :-)

Blogie Robillo WOWOWOW!!!

Blogie Robillo I think you got the mollusk's ID right, but I'm not sure about the squat lobster...

Arne Kuilman These squat lobsters need capturing and identification by specific features. In this case when you're not sure the most common normal featured (brown) squat lobster is Galathea balssi. That's what I call these unless they start having striped or more color or a special feature. You can also say: Galathea sp. meaning Family of the squat lobsters, but not sure which one.
