|Action: changed name from "Unknown" to "Stenopus hispidus
| ||"This is a "coral banded shrimp," Stenopus hispidus, but it is lacking the large "arms" and pincers normally seen in this species. These are commonly lost during territorial fights between males and generally grow back at the next molting. This species is pantropical in warm seas.|
