22. March 2017

We were able to import some specimens of the freshwater crab Laevimon kottelati. This interesting an beautiful crab attains a size of about 4.5 cm Carapax-width aund existis endemicly in Vietnam. Here it has been discovered in 1998 and decribed scientifically in 2005 as a new species in a new genus. It lives amphibic in the shallow water of the bank of small rivers. The photos of live specimens we post here are to the best of our knowledge the only ones that exist.
