Info

Gnathophyllum taylori is a bumblebee shrimp endemic to the south-east coast of Australia, first described in 2003.
In the Tasman Sea, the shrimp lives in the reef among weeds and boulders, under rocks near the reef edge.
Gnathophyllum taylori most closely resembles two Atlantic species, Gnathophyllum modestum Hay, 1917, and Gnathophyllum elegansRisso, 1816, but is easily distinguished by its banded rather than spotted body coloration.

Color: The body is pale dull translucent yellow with narrow widely spaced dark purple bands, 4- 5 bands are on the on the carapace, 6 - 8 bands on the abdomen.
The edges of the dark bands are slightly lighter than the ground color of the body.
The ground color of the cephalothorax sometimes appears deeper yellow than that of the abdomen due to the color of the viscera.
Pereopods without banding but with white or yellowish mottling.
Sixth abdominal segment and caudal fan transparent.
