Alpheus mitis is an Indo-West Pacific snapping shrimp that belongs to the Diadema species group within the genus Alpheus. Banner and Banner (1983) expressed some doubt about the separation of A. mitis and A. paracrinitus; based on this, Chace (1988) and others suggest that A. mitis is known only with certainty from its original description by Dana (1852) in the the Balabac strait.
