Apparently uBio thinks horseshoe crabs sometimes go by the name of "king crab." Oh common names. I'm guessing this is something in http://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/123805-Paralithodes ?

Hard to tell from photo, but is probably Paralithodes camtschaticus, the red king crab. Many members of this crab family in AK though.
