Comprehensive Description

Read full entry
This species lives around black smokers where the fluids are percolating at temperatures between 5 and 33°C, among molluscan beds. The similarity in the mouthparts and chela morphology suggests that the shrimps ingest free bacteria, mollusc pseudo-faeces, or other detritus, as most other species of the family. Some ovigerous females were collected in May 2005 (American cruise PAR 5).
