Periclimenes imperator

The emperor shrimp (Periclimenes imperator) is a species of shrimp with a wide distribution across the Indo-Pacific.[1] It lives commensally on a number of hosts, including the sea slug Hexabranchus.[2] A. J. Bruce first described it in 1967 based on eight specimens ranging from 4 millimetres (0.16 in) to 7.6 millimetres (0.30 in), and found Periclimenes rex to be its best resemblance.[3]

Ecology

Emperor shrimp live in water up to 45 metres (148 ft) in depth,[4] and can grow to a length of 1.9 centimetres (0.75 in).[5]
