Texas Coast Mantis shrimp?

In the near future I am thinking of puting together a tank with just coastal species of my home state and I am curious if there are any species of mantis shrimp that are from the coast of Texas/Gulf of Mexico. Any insight on this will be appreciated.

Squilla empusa and other species are commonly taking in shrimp trawls. Lysiosquillina are also found on sand flats and N. wennerae are common offshore on reefs.
