14 Snakelock Anemone shrimp (Periclimenes sagittifer) were found during a dive off Swanage Pier in Dorset.
Periclimenes sagittifer are small, transparent shrimps which can reach about 3cm in size and usually live symbiotically with the Snakelocks Anemone, giving it its name. This is the first known sighting of Periclimenes sagittifer on mainland Britain.
