Atlantic Marsh Fiddler Crab - Uca pugnax - male

Atlantic Marsh Fiddler Crab - Uca pugnax - Male
Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, Kent County, Delaware, USA
August 15, 2014
Seen from the Boardwalk Trail.
I believe this is Uca pugnax. It has the royal blue spot
between the eyestalks that sources on the web say is one
of the diagnostic features.


Are the individuals seen separately...
...the same two that were photographed fighting? If not, the images should be unlinked.


correct, different individuals, and now unlinked
that was easier than I thought.
