This Semiterrestrial Vampire Crab was newly described from Borneo in June 2019.
@Leuba - Thanks and yes, they are indeed small in size, this one is around 6-8 cm.
What a beauty ! I read that they are quite small. Hope their habitat is safe.
Thank you, @Saturniidae27 for your kind words and appreciation :)@Brian38 - I looked up the description paper, it seems they didn't give the common name but refers it to Semiterrestrial Vampire Crab.
I can't wait to find out about its common name.
You always find the most unique creatures, thanks for sharing :-)
