This is a very rare image of a pair of Coleman Shrimp (Periclimenes colemani) on the their usual host, the Fire Urchin (Asthenosoma varium) featuring an isopod.
The large toothache like lump on the right side of the larger shrimp is actually a Bopyrid Parasitic Isopod which lives in the gills of the shrimp.
Image taken in the shallow waters on the muck shore dive at Basura in Anilao in the Batangas region of The Philippines.
