Fancy blue-sport striped Craby When I first saw this I knew am seeing a least documented crab from India. I was on a study tour on the island named Chetlat from Lakshadweep Archipelago, India. This island was merely 2km long. I had just 3 night stay here in which I was to documented whatever I could. I was exploring rocky shore during the lowest low tide of the day and among the beauties I recorded this was one special spotting I did.<br />
If you try googling this species Percnon planissimum you will hardly get anything on it. Definitely a least studied species!!!
