Tuesday Crustie: The bells!

These charming little guys and gays are called hunchback amphipods, belonging to the family Cyproideidae. Yet another group of crustaceans I don’t know at all well. Except that some of them are darned photogenic.

Wow, those colors are amazing! The blue and yellow makes me think of Allogalathea elegans. I wonder if it mimics some kind of invertebrate host or if its aposematic.
