My skunk shrimp gets those and then loses them when he molts.  He seems unaffected by the spots.  I have no idea what they are.

Someone once told me that it is a parasitic organism growing on the carapice of the shrimp he told me it doesn't harm the shrimp since they shed so often it can't get a stranglehold on the shrimp.  One of my cleaners had this and soon died though so I don't know

how true this is.
