    So, if you have crabs and consider this to be a serious issue, and feel that you absolutely must know what you have....

    I point to thee;

    Systema brachyurorum: an annotated checklist of extant brachyuran crabs of the world.

    Take a deep breath before you open this one, its hefty. But, there are some pictures ;-)

    Hahahaha!!! Very funny viper! ;-)
    Unfortunately they don't have that many pics - theres a lot more descriptions than pictures, so you'd probably only get a fraction of the spp in the guide then.
    I did warn you guys! ;-)
