Shrimps are a diverse group of decapod crustaceans, and the genus Macrobrachium (Bate, 1868) is one of the most important of freshwater Palaemonidae.
Decades before molecular techniques advanced the search for opsins, photosensitivity in the sixth abdominal ganglion (also called the caudal photoreceptor) had been detected in several decapod crustaceans (an order that includes lobsters and crayfishes), which could evoke a tail flexion escape response (Wilkens and Larimer, 1976; Edwards, 1984).
This finding is surprising in light of previous studies of decapod species from inland waters, which indicate a crepuscular feeding rhythm (Zimmermann et al.

These bivalves have been reported specifically as epizoans on mangrove roots, gorgonians, corals (Slack-Smith, 1998), decapod crustaceans (Fernandez-Leborans, 2010) and other mollusks (Cope, 1968; Eschweile & Buschbaum, 2011; Zell, Beckmann, & Stinnesbeck, 2014).
The most frequently consumed decapods were parthenopid crabs (29%), portunid crabs (28%), calappid crabs (28%), and shrimps (28%).
