Given the abundance of Pacific Mole Crab
(Emerita analoga) in the habitat at this location, and the behavior we observed, we presumed Mole Crabs
were the most likely prey.
Larval release rhythm of the mole crab
Emerita talpoida (Say).
Yolk utilization and esterase activity in the mole crab
Emerita asiatica (Milne Edwards).
Similar results have been obtained for the subtidal crab Neopanope sayi (De Vries and Forward, 1991) and the mole crab
Ernerita talpoida (Ziegler and Forward, 2005).

Latitudinal patterns in abundance and life-history traits of the mole crab
Emerita brasiliensis on South American sandy beaches.
Ocypode quadrata, popularly known as the "ghost crab" (commonly as Maria-farinha or caranguejo-fantasma in Brazil), has nocturnal habits and forages on bivalves such as Donax hanleyanus Philippi, 1842, and the mole crab
Emerita brasiliensis Schmitt, 1935, in Brazil (Veloso et al.
Three intertidal organisms whose activity patterns have been scrutinized in detail are the green crab (Carcinus maenas, Naylor, 1958), mole crab
(Emerita talpoida, Forward et al., 2005), and fiddler crab (Uca spp., Bennett et al., 1957: Barnwell, 1966).
The mole crab
Emerita talpoida (Say) is a ubiquitous part of the sandy beach habitat throughout its life cycle.
Flies that resemble a small crab similar to the mole crab
will be scarfed up in the troughs by hungry snook.
Emeriti is a small genus of decapod crustaceans, known as mole crabs
, sand crabs, sand fleas sand fiddlers or sea cicada.
(Emerita analoga), the intermediate host for P altmani and a major component of the gull-billed tern diet in San Diego, were found in the stomachs of necropsied terns along with cystacanths, and are the presumed source of the parasite infection.
