Looks interesting...

Zootaxa 3889(2)

To “bee” or not to be—on some ornamental shrimp from Guangdong Province, Southern China and Hong Kong SAR, with descriptions of three new species

Several atyid specimens were collected from hill streams in Guangdong Province, Southern China and Hong Kong during field
trips between 2004 and 2013. Some of these species, most of them also sold as ornamental pet shrimp in the international
aquarium trade, proved to be new to science by morphological observation and analysis of mtDNA sequences. Three new
species, Caridina logemanni n. sp., Caridina mariae n. sp. and Caridina conghuensis n. sp., all of them members of the so
called Caridina serrata species group (Cai & Ng 1999), are described in detail below. Caridina tumida Wang, Liang & Li,
2008 is synonymised with Caridina venusta Wang, Liang & Li, 2008. Caridina meridionalis Wang, Liang & Li, 2008 is moved
to the genus Paracaridina Liang, Guo & Tang, 1999 and synonymised with Paracaridina zijinica Liang, 2002. New records for
Caridina trifasciata Yam & Cai, 2003 and Caridina serrata Stimpson, 1860 are recorded. All species are compared to their
morphologically closest congeners and the phylogenetic relationships between atyid shrimps from Southern China are shown.
