Long-hand hermit:
Long-hand hermit (Pagurus tanneri): The long-hand hermit is a deep-water species, typically found below 100 meters. I have found this species to rare in southeast Alaska, but this could be due to scarcity of collections at depth. Similar to Horny-hand hermit crab (Pagurus cornutus) and Knobby-hand hermit crab (Pagurus confragosus) in having a raised ridge on both the right and left claw, the ridge on the right hand of the long-hand hermit crab does not have its raised apex strongly pointing forward.
