Odd Color Morph - Anyone ever see this?

Odd Color Morph - Anyone ever see this?

Postby jculter » Fri Jul 13, 2012 5:07 pm

I received this image from a colleague. This shrimp has recently in estuaries of the Gulf of Mexico.
I have never seen an animal of this color and I do not have a specimen as yet to examine for the
taxonomic characteristics. If anyone is familiar with this shrimp I would appreciate information.
Can't see many details in the picture so I can't identify.
I am an invertebrate biologist at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, FL.
You can post information but please also email me directly: jculter@mote.org

It is black with a red dorsal stripe, guessing about 4 inches long.
I could not upload the image. It can be viewed at:

Thanks in advance.
