Brief SummaryRead full entry
Alpheus christofferseni is a snapping shrimp associated with innkeeper worms (echiurans) such as Ochetostoma cf. edax (Anker et al. 2007). A. christofferseni occurs in the Western Atlantic (Brazil and the Caribbean coast of Panama), and is morphologically and genetically most similar to two eastern Pacific species of alpheid, Alpheus naos and A. aequus, that are also found in echiuran burrows, (Anker et al. 2007).
