ID possible?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

last June in Lembeh I made the following picture from a very small crab that I've never seen before:

Has anybody an idea what it can be or were I can start searching?

Any help is appreciated!

 

Cheers

I suspect it might be an elbow crab, family Parthenopidae. A good clean pic from above is much better for id than a frontal image. Do a search for Daldorfia and see if that's similar.

You might be right with 'Ellbow Crab'.

I was searching the web and found some pics but nothing that looks at least similar.

I know, but I didn't have the chance for a good ID-docu picture.

Couldn't find any similar pics from Daldorfia :-(.
