Please note, there are numerous species of Opossum or mysid shrimps, their identification is difficult as features are microscopic and dissection is often needed to determine the species. Here the Ray Society book "British Mysidaceae" by Prof. W. M. Tattersall and Olive S. Tattersall, 1951; has been used to ''try'' and identify littoral specimens.
