I have never heard of it happening, but currently they share the same genus as the two you mentioned so it's theoretically feasible. I'm of the belief that these shrimp in our hobby are in need of a taxonomic overhaul, as shrimp that are geographically isolated from one another that don't cross-breed in the aquarium are often lumped into the Caridina genus. Hopefully someone on here will know if they can breed with these other species with some certainty.

I'm going to go with no... or most likely wont happen. More likely to breed with other "nose" shrimp than other "non-nose" species... although I don't know if even those have crossed. (nose to nose of different species)
