New crab species in the Netherlands


This 28 July 2016 video shows a Dromia personata crab with an Aplidium elegans sea squirt.

On 11 August 2016, divers in the Oosterschelde estuary in Dutch Zeeland province saw a Dromia personata crab. It was the first time ever that this crab had been seen in the Netherlands. It is a species of southern European and west African coasts.
