It seems the Flagfin Shrimp Goby (Mahidolia mystacina) comes in a variety of different shades, ranging from a pale beige colour to a very dark brown.

The strange thing about the individual seen here with its "partner" Pistol (Alpheid) Shrimp, is the apparent lack of a neon blue spot at the rear of the dorsal fin.
