A Broad-clawed porcelain crab, Porcellana platycheles, photographed against a white background in a studio before release. The crab is sitting on a pebble covered in the calcareous tubes left by tube worms. The crabs are small with a carapace length of about 15mm and have hairy fringes which aid their camouflage.
