Fiddler Crab | Uca rapax (Ocypodidae)
« on: Wed, 29 March 2017, 01:33:42 PM »
This Carribean Mud Fiddler Crab, Uca rapax, was near Bigi Pan, where the boats go over the dike. I post it just to check the species name.

Smiles,
Klaas

Although I'm not a crabologist ( ::)), I agree that this specimen appears to be a rather yellowish Uca rapax. I don't think we have experts on crustaceans on GNF yet, but once that happens, I'm sure your specimens will also get looked at again.

Cheers, Auke
