Caption: Imperial shrimp (Periclimenes imperator, lower centre) on a starfish. This shrimp uses starfish and other motile invertebrates for transport between feeding sites. The starfish gains no benefit but is not harmed by the association, so the pair are said to have a commensal relationship. Photographed off Mantanani, Malaysia.
