a few more details would help

I think the image is a little distant to give a certain ID but perhaps some more details of where it was found would help narrow down the possibilities. For example.....
Was this crab found intertidally on a sandy beach ? Was it on the rock of the breakwater?

late reply

Sorry, I only just saw this. Ummmm, the crab was in a rock pool that was at the bottom of the breakwater. Shore side of the breakwater. So only revealed at low tide and the beach is sandy.

Any pointers would be excellent!

Thanks.
