Husbandry

Risso, 1827

The image of the little crab has set us BusyBee.
Location: Kvarner, Croatia, the Mediterranean Sea.

Sex differences:
Males are slightly larger and have larger claws. My bag under the broader female body.


The presence of Maja crispata is limited to the Mediterranean.
Rarely can you find them outside of the Mediterranean, if you are specifically looking for it, which sounds quite easier than it is, because this crab goes well with everything that has her camouflaged.

In some regions it is even quite often, so you can find them, in you excursions into the "depths" of the Mediterranean.

Identification of the sexes:
In general, the males are slightly larger than the females, and they have much larger shears.
The females have a wider body bag on the bottom.

Known synonyms:
Cancer majodes Nardo, 1847
Maia verrucosa H. Milne Edwards, 1834
