Goneplax rhomboides

Hayward & Ryland 2003, says "The chelipeds of males are about 100mm, 4-5 times the length of the carapace; shorter". These seem long enough to make it a male.

Offshore crab

Rob, if you do ever come back, can you say how you came by this please? Sampling/fishing/research?
It would be nice to see this in the >>MARINES PROJECT<< as a proper Offshore post. Can you tag it ProjectM1 please?
