  1. Nice! I had seen this type of shrimp in Ustica in a cave at a depth of about 30-40 m but the picture is not so good and I could not find the ID. Now thanks to you I have it :-) (I may post it to keep track of the spotting but your picture looks a lot nicer!) Posted 4 months ago
    1. Marta, is this the same species. It was just beyond the surface - that's why the photo is comparatively good. It is taken from above the surface - I do not dive! Posted 4 months ago
