Phormictopus cancerides?

      It looks like a phormictopus. It has violet femurs though. I would have guessed "south hispaniola" but I am not sure. It might be cancerides.

      @ Goopyguy56 Yes, that's possible. Thank you for your answer

      Looks like a young Phormictopus sp green femur? But it can be anything. The genus is riddled with inbreeding i think?

      Little too much purple on the femur though to be a sp "green femur" The ones i had was as the namevstates more green. Upload a picture after it moult next time. It would have been nice to see!

      My guess would cancerides or maybe even dominican violet. I have 2 green femurs but they are too young to compare. I think green femurs have blue femurs until they get bigger then they have green ones. I would lean cancerides for now since I have seen some with a purple tinge. I dont think atrichromatis would have any purple

      P atrichomatus are more of a bronze. At least at carapace. They looks like P cancerides but instead of purple sheen on carapace they have more of a bronze tint
