Very special thanks for the first photo of Coralliocaris graminea to Sonja Ooms!

Coralliocaris graminea is a tiny commensal shrimp very difficult to see, it lives amongst the branches of Acropora hard corals. Distinctive colour pattern, with white, green and brown longitudinal lines. 1 cm. Other commensal shrimps share the same environment, but the colour pattern of this one is unique and distinctive.
