A very strange pistol shrimp

Was out hunting for a randalls pistol shrimp at the lfs when i came across a fairly large (about 1 inch) pistol, was black/brown with a yellow stripe running down its back. It was labeled as a "banded" pistol but i havent came across anything under that name which actually looks like this shrimp.

Any ideas what this shrimp is actually called and whether it would be safe to put it in my setup?
