Range & Status
Numerous specimens of this poorly known species were found associated with various hydroids on a piece of stranded wood, which also had four specimens of Planes minutus the Columbus Crab attached, on Perranporth beach in 2008. There appears to have been very few, if any, records of Caprella andreae , known to be associated with floating objects, from British waters.
