Comments This small transparent shrimp is commonly found in male female pairs that are associated with the thick-clawed porcelain crab Pachycheles rudis. Similar to Betaeus harrimani, the sparse but distinct hairs (setae = setosus), the very wide claw, and the notch between the eyes are distinctive
