This may help--I found a crab in Miami Beach, Florida under a large rock, with drying sand and leaves as well. I wonder if it is the same species. It was quite large! Check it out at 2:52Caught this cute little land crab while bug hunting. Area is around Palm Beach Florida, it was found in surprisingly dry conditions, under a large rock, sandy soil and dry leaves.

I released it back to its general location after the pics were taken.
I've caught the edible blue crabs, in a minnow trap and seen a few unidentified land crabs, but they have out ran me in most circumstances. I will try trapping for them.Do you find any of the big blue Cardisoma crabs? Can you find any more of those or other interesting crabs?
