I understand that this is a very specific remark but here it is.
I mostly identify shrimps on this site and a big problem I encounter is that most people automatically identify their observations of shrimp-looking crustacean as “Dendrobranchiata”. Actually, Dendrobranchiata represent a small fraction of what are considered shrimps, most of them actually belonging to Caridea, which is quite distant biologically speaking.
I believe this is because “Dendrobranchiata” is the term that appears when people type “prawn” in the taxon search bar. There are no widely accepted english vernacular names to distinguish Dendrobranchiata from Caridea, usually, Caridea are referred to as shrimps and Dendrobranchiata as prawns, but for some, it is the opposite.
Anyways, I do not have a solution for this at the moment but maybe someone would have an idea to spare me the never-ending work of sorting out shrimps/prawns ID?
Sorry about this crustacean nerd’s rant!
