does anybody know the scientific name of this decorator crab?

Thanks.

Its Cyclocoeloma tuberculata carrying anemones.

0006 is a good shot. IM experience these guys tend to turn away from the camera and it is hard to get the whole face.

Thanks Alex,

I took this shot in a night dive... maybe it did not see me that's why I could shoot its face...
