Small shame-faced, or box crab. This is the time of year we see them. I don't know the species and all the ones I see here are more drab than photos of C. flammea, so I'm open for identifications. See video in Flickr. (not too exciting). In 2012 we collected quite a few of these. Saw none last year.
