Time to get back to this thread. These are the LARGE AAA figures; it does not include smaller versions. Also, I am missing at least the spiny lobster. But here are the four large decapods I have (I have the mantis shrimp too, but that is not a decapod):

1. dungeness crab, Metacarcinus magister Dana, 1852
2. mud crab, Scylla serrata (Forsskal, 1774) (one of the first posts in this thread is the small AAA version of this species)
3. Maine lobster, Homarus americanus Milne-Edwards, 1827
4. tiger prawn, Penaeus monodon Fabricius, 1798

4. freshwater crab, Geothelphusa dehanni

6. terrestrial hermit crab, Coenobita caviceps [one of three color variants I have]
7. European lobster, Homarus gammarus*
8. harlequin shrimp, Hymenocera picta*
9. floral egg crab, Atergatis floridus*
