We found this species alive and healthy while doing a survey today on a shletered rocky shore below the Texaco Oil Refinary west of Pembroke Dock. Will send picture later if required. Several photographs were taken.

Found on a bouy that had drifted ashore. The buoy had ropes around it and some signs of marine life growing on but removed by abrasion on the beach. The crab is alive and in my care at present!
