Need details for this type of crab

Post by edbertp » Sun Jan 20, 2013 10:52 am

This crab is often found at the traditional market in Indonesia, but I have no idea for this crab, really. Anybody can help me for the details of this crab (e.g lifetime,species,classification) or anything?

I doubt that anyone will be able to say much from these pictures, try not to take them against window, because then the crab is too dark. And more details.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Well.. The crab are now a chili crab for sure.. But from the first and third image, the type of shell, not from the under parts, maybe people can tell something about this crab..

yeah, I'm sure you didn't keep it, but you wrote it's often found in the traditional market so maybe you could take new pictures if you have the possibility.

Portunidae crab is its family (you can tell by the flattened back simming legs) probably the blue crab also known as Callinectes sapidus. You can easily search this name and find the family history, taxonomy etc
