    Thanks so much for taking the time to do a Molt Search, Kimberly! What a diverse group for your first roundup! You’re spot on that those larger ones one the left with their protruding rostrum are all red rock crabs. You also found a nice group of kelp (or spider) crabs, a couple hairy helmets and of course a nice group of our native shore crabs. So helpful to have such a great photo as we go through for data quality checks to keep the dataset up to management & research standards. Glad to have you part of the Molt Search community! Hope it was a fun time out there!
