Ibacus peronii, the Balmain bug or butterfly fan lobster, is a species of slipper lobster. It lives in shallow waters around Australia and is the subject of small-scale fishery. It is a flattened, reddish brown animal, up to 23 cm (9 in) long and 14 cm (6 in) wide, with flattened antennae and no claws.In common with other slipper lobsters, Ibacus peronii has a broad, flattened body and a large carapace.[2] The carapace is reddish brown,[3] and reaches lengths of 2–8 centimetres (0.8–3.1 in), with the whole animal able to reach a length of 23 cm (9 in),[4] and a width of 10–14 cm (3.9–5.5 in).[3] The antennae are also short and broad, and the flattened form of the whole animal allows it to partly bury itself in soft substrates.[2] There are no claws on the five pairs of legs.
