Spider crab moulted shells

Observation - Spider crab moulted shells. Description: I found masses of Spider crab shells with legs attached washed up on Rhossili beach recently; all moulted shells I think. I read that north Atlantic spider crabs are now considered to be Maja brachydactyla rather than Maja squinado. http://www.marlin.a
