Small crab of some sort. Found in about 3ft of sandy bottom water.
Gulf of Mexico
Moved to Arthropods. :-)
I'm unsure of which species. I think there are three different choices (unsure about Libinia erinacea) that it could be. It may be a Juvenile Seagrass Spider Crab because it said that the rostrum is more forked deeply as juvenile, but I didn't see a good picture of this crab. Here's another link to look at as well for comparison.http://txmarspecies.tamug.edu/invertdeta...
