Info

Petrolisthes eriomerus Stimpson, 1871

Petrolisthes eriomerus is a porcelain crab found in the eastern Pacific Ocean. It is commonly known as the flattop crab. It is a flattened, rounded animal, with a carapace up to 20 mm across. It is a filter feeder, and also sweeps on diatoms from rocks.

The color varies from dark brown or brownish-red to blue.. Blue mouthparts and blue spots at the joints of the pincers distinguish this species from the flat porcelain crab (Petrolisthes cinctipes). However, mouth and claws must be open to show colouration.
