My grandmother(Kiri amma)showed me this one.Normally she doesn't like animals like snakes and also she doesn't like me to catch them.But,she loves these kinda innocent animals very well.When she found this,she asked me that whether you wanted it.And she took me into the house and showed me this one near her cupboard.
I think,this observation will mention me about her in future when I check these observations. :-)

It could be Ceylonthelphusa cavatrix, of which the only recorded location is at Puwakpitiya, about 6 kms away from where this crab was photographed. See Ng & Tay, 2001, The freshwater crabs of Sri Lanka, pp. 155-56.

Silana farinosa is recorded as a pest of curry leaves, Murraya koenigii. Very common in every area in Sri Lanka. These chrisomelid beetles spent their entire lives on the leaves. A female laid eggs as an ootheca (see that in last picture). Both adult and larvae act as damaging instars (1st pic and second). In the third picture you can observe the pupa of S. farinosa.

Description

In small rock pool in a small forest stream. It was shy and hard to photograph. Captive ones have been photographed very well by the freshwater crab expert Oliver Mengedoht in Germany, who got them from an aquarium fish importer more than 10 years ago. See links below. But I doubt that the identication as Ceylonthelphusa kadambyi is correct since it doesn't match the colouring of this species given in see Ng & Tay, 2001, "The freshwater crabs of Sri Lanka".

Nigh Safari with dear Uncle😍✨He came from Dubai after two years.He was the one who taught me how to catch frogs when I was 4years😁Those days,I was so afraid of them.but he was a good teacher and taught me how to get them to hands.He is not a zoologist, naturalist or anyone.But,a very good person who coloured our childhood.He taught us how to climb trees,how to ride bicycles,how to swim,how to be with nature.He was the first one who motivated me to observe.When I was 4years old ,everyday he took us for small field trips around our little gardens while we were brushing teeth.😍Those were very lovely memories.So,during those small field trips,he showed us different animals.(Not their species😁Just as a "frog,snake,worm,bird".
Anyway now,I go on small field trips with him during night when I'm free..😁❤️Now,I teach him about animals during night when go out.Thanks to him,we learnt a lot.This observation did with him and here the leg is his leg🙂Thanks again my dear uncle for teaching us those lessons durin my childhood.🙏❤️Love u a lot❤️
