Description

There are some individuals in Maldives that their body colour is white, no dark band (or not obvious) on the lower surfaces of the eyestalks. Antenna are not red orange, so they may not be juvenile of Coenobita perlatus. Are this individuals related species of Coenobita rugosus? Or new species?





































Remark

I found some land hermt crabs images from Sri Lanka, this place is close to Maldives. Are they same species?
