Comprehensive Description

"These dried shells of rock-lobsters are strangely more common on the beach than those of other Decapoda. Whether this be due as the natives say, to the creatures coming up to the surface to shed them, or to their getting killed on the reef in some way, is hard to say, but I have never seen one with the soft parts inside." (Borradaile, 1904)
