are you sure the three are the same specimen??
Moved from ID Request.

Hemigrapsus oregonesis plus
I am new to the system and should have entered the three specimens- the immature and adult H. oregonensis and the H. nudus separately. .

okay, thanks!
i unlinked the photos: linking is reserved for images of the same individual only.
in the future, you can use the same procedure when posting images but then make sure to unlink the pics (you'll see the 'unlink' command under the data)
we need to know how reliable the IDs are before moving images to the guide; please elaborate how the ID was obtained and add some essential info (or a relevant link) to your BG profile so BG users can see your credentials --it's a routine request, because the guide's scientific excellence and integrity is our primary concern

Hemigrapsus oregonesis plus
These were verified by E-Fauna BC website run from the Biodiversity Museum at UBC. I submitted them to Bug Guide when I realized your website included crustaceans. I have been working on an intertidal guide of the common species living around our sandy island in the Pacific Northwest- three more crabs, a prawn , two isopods and an amphipod so far.

thank you ever so much
