Geothelphusa dehaani (Blue variant)
Hello everyone! I’ve just written a post on my blog about a freshwater crab Geothelphusa dehanni. Here is an excerpt of what you’ll find there, for the rest click on the link below! Thank you for taking the time to check out this post ☺ Enjoy!

This is a small freshwater crab that is found in and around the forest streams of Japan. They are quite abundant during the warmer times of the year, Spring and Summer, where many can be found crawling around out in the open, and there are baby crabs everywhere. As opposed to the colder times of the year (Fall, and especially Winter) they tend to “shutdown” and tend to go into “hibernation” you could call it.

I know this is old, but since no one ever replied, let me be the first to day, NICE crabs. I hadn't heard of this species before. If anyone knows how to obtain these in the continental US, I am very interested.
