A distinctively red and white coloured Hidden Spider Crab (Xenocarcinus conicus) on a red Gorgonian Sea Fan at night on a shallow coral reef on the Great Barrier Reef in north Queensland, Australia.
These small, hidden crabs are not uncommon, but as can be seen in the image they are very difficult to see.
