Doll eualid:
Doll eualid (Eualus pusiolus): This small (under one inch in total length) shrimp is common in subtidal areas and can be found on a wide variety of habitats. Unlike most species of Eualus found in our region, the doll eualid has a short rostrum that is just about as long as the eyes. A very similar species, the Eualus butleri has two or three spines at the distal end of the merus of the first walking leg while the doll eualid only has a single spine. Color in life is variable, usually transparent with red spots, stripes, or other markings.
