Red-jointed Fiddler Crab (Minuca minax), largest of the three species of fiddler crabs found in the Chesapeake Bay, where these specimens were spotted last week. (This species is also found around NYC.)
Mud Fiddler Crab (Minuca pugnax). (This is a species I’ve seen in NYC.)
Squareback Marsh Crab (Armases cinereum). (This is a species that does not reach up to NYC.) All three of these species were seen on the mudflats crossed by the short boardwalk at Machicomoco State Park in Virginia (you have to pass both Confederate flags to get to it, btw).
