|This half-inch spider
crab has a long, triangular shaped body, distinct
bifurcated (split into two parts) rostrum, and stripe
along the center of its carapace.
Its color scheme is well adapted to its host sea fan,
with its lumpy appearance and banded red and white color
scheme on its legs and chelipeds.
This particular crab was photographed at Tubba-taha reef, in the Sulu Sea.
Identification: (?) closely related to Xenocarcinus conicus
