Out of the countless New Jersey cretaceous crab claws I've seen and found this has to be one of the strangest claw partials yet. Seems to be an ornamented shell as apposed to the smooth claw textures that are typically found. Definitely a very interesting piece, anyone have any ideas on a possible species or if any ornamental crabs have found in nj cretaceous, or any other new jersey cretaceous hunters ever come across one similar? Definitely a head scratcher
I checked out MB's page and think this is cenomanocarcinus vanstraeleni, but not 100% sure. The top is a little worse for wear and could use some cleaning, but the flip side looks awesome. Can anyone confirm this ID? This is from the Eagle Ford Formation in Texas. Cretaceous. The crab is Approx. 2" wide.
