Husbandry

Petrolisthes manimaculis Glassell, 1945
Chocolate Porcelain Crab

Members of the order Decapoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Precopulatory courtship ritual is common (through olfactory and tactile cues); usually indirect sperm transfer.

This small crab lives near creeks or wetter parts of forest. Filter feeder. Not a true crab, actually more closely related to hermit crabs
