Cumacea (hooded shrimp)

Post by Franz Neidl »

The Cumacea are small marine crustacean, 1- 10 mm long. Sometimes they are called hooded shrimps. During the day they are living in benthos and during the night you can find them in plankton.
"My" cumacean was circa 3 mm long. I dont know the name of the species.
