Short description Morphology

Ordinarily known as "coon-stripe" because of the peculiar striping of red or brown and white which is especially evident in the younger individuals. It is a rather stout species with a finely pitted surface and 10 to 12 median dorsal spines, all movable, about half of them on the carapace. The rostrum is a little longer than the carapace, the terminal half is unarmed above, the apex trifid, the lower margin 6 to 8 spined.
