Mediterreanean crab for id please ?
Hello again,
while shooting seashells in France we found this alien guy <img src="images/smiley/smile.gif" alt="" border="0" /> Maybe some of you can identify it ?

Hello Paul,

Maja squinado is very different from this one. It's a "clssic" sea spider. This one was very small and really looks like a true alien
(like many species from the ocean.
