Comprehensive Description

Read full entry
Biology/Natural History: This bathypelagic midwater shrimp is an active, steady swimming predator but does not vertically migrate. A cosmopolitan species at tropical and subtropical latitudes, there is substantial genetic distance between populations separated by large geographical distances (such as between California and Hawaii, John F. Scarbrough dissertation, Loma Linda Universtiy 2004). It is less common this far north than it is in tropical and subtropical waters.
