A new species of Lysmata came to Buenos Aires,shipped from Philippines.This time,for a change they are not the usual L.boggessi.
They are not very colorful,they have a well defined saddle mark and eggs are bright green.
I suspect this could be L.vittata,a widespread Indopacific species which for some reason never showed in LFS before.This is the popular ( if not the only) peppermint shrimp in Australia.

Yes,I think they are L.vittata.I will take better pics with a side view.
They are rather smallish for Lysmata,may be they will still grow more.They produced some larvae,which I am raising.They seem typical peppermint zoea and molt/change stage every 2 days.

Some more pics.These Lysmata show longitudinal stripes covering fully the flanks;while West Atlantic species show stripes only in the upper half,being replaced in the lower half by short oblique lines.

Thanks,Kamram!.I have bred and raised some few.They take 50-66 days to meta.Larvae are very small and newly settled post larvae are tiny and transparent,very hard to see.
