Barred shrimp (Heptacarpus pugettensis): The barred shrimp is a common but easily missed species in low intertidal rocky areas. The species is unusual in that it will cling to the undersides of rocks when you turn them over. Similar in appearance to very small Stout coastal shrimp (Heptacarpus brevirostris) but differs from that species in having strong banded patterns and by having epipods only on the first and second walking legs.
