Periclimenes soror

The starfish shrimp (Periclimenes soror) is a species of shrimp that lives as a symbiont with starfishes.

Description[edit]

Periclimenes soror is a species of little shrimp with a truncated rostris, and showing a wide variety of coats, but often with a distinctive white stripe or white dots pattern on the back. The rest of the body varies with the host starfish: it is often "a deep purple red" when living on Culcita, Protoreaster or Pentaceraster, but red with a white dorsal stripe when living on Acanthaster, and can also be transparent[1] Adults reach up to 15 millimetres (0.6 in) long.[2]


Ecology and behaviour[edit]

It lives commensally on starfishes, including the "crown-of-thorns" starfish, Acanthaster planci.

Distribution[edit]

This species has a wide distribution across the Indo-Pacific and in the Gulf of Panama.[1]
