Is anything known about the Tanna named Nehorai? He had a son R' Yosei (also a Tanna). There's also a R' Nehorai ben Shemayah (or Shema'yah? I'm not sure). Are they the same person? Is anything known about him (them)?

Shabbas 147b - Rabbi Nehorai is either Rabbi Nechemya or Rabbi Elazar Ben Aruch
Eiruvin 13b - Rabbi Meir's real name is Rabbi Nehorai(see however Kiddushin 82 where Rabbi Meir and Rabbi Nehorai are in the same mishna with different opinions) and the gemera then brings down the same gemara as in Shabbas 147b about Rabbi Nechemya and Rabbi Elazar ben Aruch being Rabbi Nehorai.
Nazir 5a - Rabbi Nehorai says in the name of Rabbi Yehoshua different period then other rabbis mentioned as Rabbi Nehorai. Rabbi Nehorai and Rabbi Yossi argue in Nazir 66 (where did you see that his son was Rabbi Yossi)?
Never seen a Rabbi Nahorai ben Shemhya,where did you see this?
