Description

A friend was collecting plankton for the marine science center, and found three colorful shrimp in the tow net. Thanks, @timlawson, for assisting with the photography! I think this blue-speckled, orange-eyed almost 2" shrimp is Heptacarpus stylus. It can move its long rostrum, called by Gregory Jensen "bladelike," from side to side, as seen in one of the photos.
