AKA Dwarf Teardrop Crab. Forward, outturned posture of the first pair of walking legs is the ID, but I'm still not 100% on this since I don't know crabs. Could also be a very juvenile Moss Crab (Loxorhynchus crispatus).. or...?

Found under cobble. About 1/3" across. Covered in sponges, on which it snacked as it walked along. :-) There's a photo of it reaching up for a clawful in the alternate photos here.
