Another crab from Indonesia

I need some help identifying this cute little fella...

Taken at a site called "Torpedo Alley" off Rinca Island, Indoensia at night at a depth of around 13 metres on sand. It appears to have a polychaete living on its carapace.

Shot at a site called "Circus" off Gili Banta at a depth of 5 metres at night. Looks like it is in the family Portunidae and perhaps Thalamita sp. The spines on either side of the carapace are quite long.

I can post closer images of certain parts if required.

Any ideas what species this might be? The shot was taken on the black sand at a depth of 20 metres at a dive site called "Techno Reef" off Sangeang Island.

I'm guessing it might be Lysiosquilla sp. from the colour, but that's purely a guess.

I shot this sea snake off Mabul Island in the Celebes Sea off Sabah, Malaysia. I suspect it is a Hydrophis sp. but which one? H. melanosoma?
