I just spotted this article that says the lifespan of the metabetaeus lohena is six years. I don’t know how to copy and paste,but if you google (anchialine pond shrimps DLNR) it will pop up. It is the only reference to their age that I’ve ever seen.

Six years? Not as long as the Opae Ula but still quite long for a shrimp.
