Anemone Porcelain crab / Porzellankrebs (Anemonenkrebs)

Neopetrolisthes maculatus (maculata)

Porcelain crab - Porzellankrebs

Anemones are always interesting to look inside or underneath. This little crab lives mostly in pairs. When in danger they scurry under the covering of the anemone and hope that the nematocysts sting their enemy. They filter plankton with bristles on their pincers.
