Umbrella Crab  (Cryptolithodes sitchenis)

The Umbrella Crab is a cool find for scuba divers. It lies on the bottom in very shallow locales among broken shells and is very difficult to spot unless it moves. Its color varies greatly and it is similar in appearance to the Butterfly Crab, however the Umbrella crab has a head spike (rostrum) and the shell flares outward on the nose. It is also typically found on the open coastline in shallow water.
