Also known as Portunid Crab and Harlequin Anemone Crab. They feed on plankton, and grow to about 3cm in length.
Found on sand and mud areas of coral and rocky reefs, at depths of 5 to 25m. Widespread in the Indo-West Pacific region.
I took these photos on an early evening dive, off Isla Reta Beach Resort on Talikud Island, Samal, Philippines.
