Probably Gonodactylellus, but I would have to guess at the species. It reminds me of G. snidsvongi, but without a better look at the teson that is only a wild guess.

Thank you Roy. Well iv tried to source where the rock came from, seems like the rock has gone through two previous owners, bug i think all my questions has upset someone so hasnt replied.
So without that info just guessing until i can get better pictures. Which area are they from that you suggested? So do you point blank not think its a wannerae?

I did pick another up today, no photos yet. Looks similar but red/maroon in colour supposed to originate from Java/Phillipenes.

Iv wanted one for ages and two cone up at once.

Indo-Pacific

A dorsal view of the telson would be most helpful.
