To-Be-Identified Shrimp 12/16/12
Hi Bob,
 <Lynn>
Just saw the gorgeous shrimp from IZOO, listed as “to-be-identified”, on today’s dailies.  It appears to be Alpheus soror, aka the “Bullseye Pistol Shrimp”.
<Ah yes; thank you>
  I’ve seen them available on the ‘net listed as such, but found a listing in Debelius’ Crustacean Guide of The World (2001), page 147.  It lists length up to 3.5cm, distribution as “Maldives, Sri Lanka, Philippines, probably widespread to IWP”.  It also goes on to state that the two photos listed “show an undescribed species, possibly of the Alpheus diadema-group. It has purple walking legs, and a conspicuous large ocellus on the second abdominal segment.”.  Hope that helps! 
 <Indeed it does... And I do have this work... in fact, Helmut is an olde (we're no longer middle age) friend... He and friends met up w/ us some Interzoo's ago in Dipelsdorf! >
Take care,
-Lynn Z
<Will do. Now down in Cozumel; sans JoshS unfortunately. His cold/flu is too bad. BobF>
<I'm sorry to hear about Josh, but am glad that you're no doubt having some good times/diving in Cozumel.  Enjoy and Happy Holidays! -Lynn
<<Ah yes. And to you and your husband. BobF>>

 
Naso lituratus, the Naso Tang to most aquarists; it is also known as the tricolor or lipstick tang. There are some who claim that "blonde" and "streamer" versions are different species; they're all Naso lituratus, with males growing longer streaming caudal filaments. To some twenty inches long (w/o the tail!) in the wild. A juvenile in CT. 2010
 
Sphaeramia nematoptera (Bleeker 1856), the Pajama Cardinalfish. West Pacific. To three inches in length. A long-standing favorite in the aquarium trade. Second perhaps only to the Banggai in use. IZOO 2010
