| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“These have the shell regularly rounded in front and narrowed behind; the legs are of moderate length, the claws large, and often unequal in size. This species inhabits deep water, and is captured in large quantities by sinking baskets, pots, or nets, baited with carrion, in place which it is known to frequent.” — Goodrich, 1859
