thanks Jetoar,

You are such a prolific poster, I was hoping you'd contribute to some of my arthropods posts :)

And thanks for adding species/organisms and manufacturer.

I have a few duplicates of it, I'll set them aside the next chance I get.
Why I'm done with the ATF, at least for now:

This is the original, the one made before Chap Mei started making Animal Planet figures, so its pretty hard to find. Chap Mei makes one similar to it though, you can get it in some of the ocean themed sets.

With the loss of so many images due to Photobucket, will slowly revisit these taxa-specific posts with fresh images!

Today we visit the Japanese crayfish, Cambaroides japonicus (De Haan, 1841). This species is endemic to Japan where it is considered vulnerable. This species is rather popular among Japanese manufacturers, and is often made in both brown and blue color variants:

above water, left to right:
1. Kaiyodo (Capsule Q Animatales - Tohoku)
2. F-toys (Creatures of the Waterside)
3. Kaiyodo (Natural Monuments of Japan)
4. F-toys (Creatures of the Waterside) [blue variant]

below water, left to right:
1. Kaiyodo (Capsule Q Animatales - Tohoku) [blue variant]
2. Kaiyodo (Natural Monuments of Japan) [blue variant - Special Release]
3. Yujin (Shrimps and Crabs Collection)

Today we visit the mud crab (also known as a mangrove crab or black crab), Scylla serrata (Forsskal, 1775). This is an economically-important 'food' crab native to mangroves and estuaries in the Indo-Pacific [my mini diorama here might not be the best for this species, but it's currently the only marine one I have]. The figure on the left is a 'small' one by AAA (they also made a much larger model); the one on the right is by Kaiyodo (Aquatales Polyresin Series).

Today we visit the march of the long-armed soldier crabs, genus Mictyris. These crabs are endemic to the Indo-West Pacific region and are known for their large congregations. There are two species in toy/figure form. In the front of my image is M. brevidactylus Stimpson, 1858 by Kaiyodo (Capsule Q Museum - Japanese Crabs Collection). In the back, from left to right, are M. longicarpus (Latreille, 1806) by Wing Mau (Aquatic Museum), Cadbury (Yowies - Australian Series), and Epoch, respectively. The large base is made of six pieces from the Wing Mau set.

Classy Crabs!

Today we visit some classic figures from one of the most popular brands by toy animal collectors, Play Visions. PV figures are generally much sought-after and can sometimes be quite expensive.

center: Sally lightfoot crab, Grapsus grapsus (Linnaeus, 1758) from the Galapagos Island Wildlife set.

clockwise from top [all from the Habitat Earth: Crabs set]:

1. blue crab, Callinectes sapidus Rathbun, 1896
2. fiddler crab, gen. sp.
3. giant Japanese spider crab, Macrocheira kaempferi (Temmink, 1836)
4. purple globe crab, Randallia ornata (Randall, 1840)
5. helmet crab, Telmessus cheiragonus (Tilesius, 1812)
6. 'pear crab' [the identity of this figure is still a mystery!]
7. Alaskan king crab, Paralithodes camtschaticus (Tilesius, 1815)
8. striped shore crab, Pachygrapsus crassipes (Randall, 1840)

Bottlecap Beauties! Capsule Crustaceans!

Today we take a brief look at the decapods produced by Kaiyodo for various bottlecap series. Many of these were released for various aquariums in Japan. They were usually parts of sets that included all kinds of marine/aquatic animals. Most of the sets included at least one crustacean (there are a couple non-decapods as well, not shown here).

back row, left to right:
1. blue swimmer crab, Portunus pelagicus (Linnaeus, 1758) (Enoshima Aquarium)
2. spiny lobster, Panulirus brunneiflagellum Sekiguchi and George, 2005 (Sumida Aquarium)
3. horsehair crab, Erimacrus isenbeckii (Brandt, 1848) [unknown series]
4. Japanese spiny lobster, Panulirus japonicus von Siebold, 1824 (Enoshima Aquarium)
5. red frog crab, Ranina ranina (Linnaeus, 1758) (Shingawa Aquarium)
6. long-legged spiny lobster, Panulirus longipes (Milne-Edwards, 1868) (Enoshima Aquarium)
7. box crab, Calappa lophos (Herbst, 1792) (Aquatales)

bottom row, left to right:
1. Tasmanian giant crab, Pseudocarcinus gigas (Lamarck, 1819) (Shinagawa Aquarium)
2. Alaskan king crab, Paralithodes camtschaticus (Tilesius,1815) (Hokkaido Figure Winter Version)
3. freshwater crab, Geothelphusa dehanni (White, 1847) (Birdtales)
4. Japanese tiger prawn, Penaeus (=Marsupenaeus) japonicus Spence Bate, 1888 (Enoshima Aquarium)
5. Maine lobster, Homarus americanus Milne-Edwards, 1837 (Enoshima Aquarium)

Unique Decapods!

Today's post will focus on 'unique' species; i.e. species that are represented by only one example in toy/model/figure form. This post today does not include some species previously shown in this thread (e.g., some of the Play Visions crabs are unique) or examples from speciose genera (e.g., Panulirus, Portunus) that will probabaly be covered in more detail later. It also focuses on smaller figures (e.g., tube/TOOB or gashapon-sized figures).

It is not all-inclusive, but rather a sampling:

Back (elevated) row, left to right:
1. scarlet cleaner shrimp, Lysmata debelius Bruce, 1893 (Koro Koro - Toba Aquarium)
2. mud-flat crab, Chasmagnathus convexus (De Haan, 1835) (Wing Mau - Aquatic Museum) EDIT 2/7/2018: I just realized I photographed the wrong figure - LOL - this is a red-claw crab! I will image a correct one for a complete Wing Mau set (previously reviewed here: http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=2020.msg16717#msg16717)
3. hydrothermal vent squat lobster, Shinkaia crosnieri Baba and Williams, 1998 (Colorata - Deep Sea Creatures)
4. Yunohana crab, Galdalfus yunohana (Takeda, Hashimoto, and Ohta, 2000) (Colorata - Deep Sea Creatures)
5. Tasmanian giant crab, Pseudocarcinus gigas (Lamarck, 1818) (Kaiyodo - Skinagawa Aquarium)

Second row, left to right:
1. samurai crab, Heikeopsis japonica (von Siebold, 1824) (Kaiyodo - Capsule Q Museum: Japanese Crabs Collection)
2. batwing coral crab, Carpilius corallinus (Herbst, 1783) (K&M International - Coral Reef Nature Tube)
3. Pulalius sp. (Safari LTD - Ancient Fossils TOOB)

Third row, left to right:
1. sponge crab, Stimdromia lateralis (Gray, 1831) (Cadbury - Yowies, Australian series)
2. red egg crab, Atergatis integerrimus (Lamarck, 1818) (Koro Koro - Toba Aquarium)
3. floral egg crab, Atergatis floridus (Linnaeus, 1767) (Epoch - The Poison)
4. harlequin shrimp, Hymenocera picta Dana, 1852 (Epoch)

Bottom row, left to right:
1. box lobster, Linuparus trigonus (von Siebold, 1824) (Kaiyodo - Choco Q Animatales)
2. Mexican dwarf crayfish, Cambarellus patzcuarensis Villalobos, 1943 (Banjihan ACE) [this was in a set of six, same sculpt but different color variants, but considered unique here since I am unaware of other sculpts]
3. lake prawn, Palaemon paucidens de Haan, 1844 (Yujin - Shrimps and Crabs Collection)
