seen? This rather slender large prawn is sometimes seen
on some of our shores. In sandy, silty areas and near seagrasses.
It is more active at night and usually seen alone. It is probably
quite common but overlooked because it is so well camouflaged.
Features: 5-8cm long. Body plain
in various colours from yellowish, brown or beige to grey and even
reddish. There may be faint bands on the body.
*Species are difficult to positively identify without close examination.
