Total guess that this is a Paguristes barbatus
but I base that on the only other obs here (https://inaturalist.nz/observations/4235848) which was one of mine and which @clinton gave the ID for - although this one seems to have been evicted and looking for a new home. It was crawling around on common flapjack.

I knew that shrimps, crays etc molt, and here is the shell of a glass shrimp. There were alot of these shells around so I guess that they must have a season for doing this. Also there were alot of the animals around too - far more than I usually see.

maybe these? When they flew - and I didn't get a photo of that - looking at the top of them, their wings were white and it was like a white stripe down the middle of their back. Will see if I can get better photos.
