Notes This tiny hermit crab looks very much like the hairy hermit, Pagurus hirsutiusculus in having white 'knees' on the legs but the two can easily be distinguished because P. caurinus has orange-brown unbanded (solid colored) antennae. Photo taken with a Pentax Optio W10 underwater camera submerged in a shallow aquarium.
