Notes This little shrimp is terrestrial. In life it is much darker. They originate from New South Wales in Australia but are now well established in (old) South Wales and Bristol. This may be the first confirmed specimen from the Bath area. It has lost both its main antennae but one can still be seen in the photo and the number of joints helped to identify it.
