Brachycarpus biunguiculatus (Lucas), un camarón nocturno que ocurre en los arrecifes de la Isla de Saint Vincent (Antillas Menores), se reporta como un nuevo limpiador de peces. Su habitat, asociaciones, agregaciones y comportamiento de limpieza de peces, fueron estudiados. Durante el día el camarón permanece oculto en su cueva, la cual puede estar localizada bajo corales, rocas o esponjas. Durante la noche se le encuentra activo desplazándose y limpiando peces. Con frecuencia se hallaron uno o dos individuos bajo las espinas de erizos Diadema antillarum, probablemente buscando protección. Los adultos permanecen solos o en parejas y los juveniles pueden encontrarse en grupos hasta de 15 individuos. B. biunguiculatus fue observado limpiando seis especies de peces, especialemente el chromis marrón Chromis multilineata (Guichenot) y el pez señorita bicolor Eupomacentrus partitus (Poey), (ambos Pomacentridae). Se describe un nuevo mecanismo de limpieza.
