Ghost crab in New Jersey - Ocypode quadrata
Corson's Inlet, Ocean City, Cape May County, New Jersey, USA
September 21, 2008
Size: carapace ~15mm wide
A crab on an ocean beach, but I think it's a terrestrial arthropod: it matches the dry sand perfectly, and it came out of a burrow above the high tide line. Totally frassable if it's too crabby, but I'm curious about what it is.
