Divers have discovered a transparent amphipod crustacean.
It was found by Australian divers in underwater caves in Mt Arthur Range, close to Nelson.
The amphipod is six to eight millimetres long and appears to live on the water-worn rock surfaces.

Dr Fenwick said it was important to do an inventory of life in New Zealand.
