They have a lot of locally caught specimens for public viewing, but there were no specifics on this one other than the species ID.

I'll leave it here for a couple of days in case someone wants a placeholder for the species

One of only two local Stomatopods (the other species, Nanosquilla grayi, grows to 4cm.) I really want to find one some day...

Moved from ID Request.
