Now this was a bit of a surprise.
Swam out when I lifted a rock. It then tucked into a space nearby. Very weird things. Habitat shot last. That's the spot he was in before I flipped the rock.

~4cm long
Lower intertidal.

Kindly picked out by kotare. See https://inaturalist.nz/observations/114436427. At this location at the river mouth it's pretty much the only crab species it could be. Observations of the mud tunnels nearby and shape of the crab in the kotare's beak further support this.
