Hard to ID what species of crab this is. It was only a few centimeters across. Never seen one like this in the intertidal zone. I'm wondering if it's a young puget sound king crab but still unsure.

This 1" shrimp had a smooth, spotted body and banded antennae. It looked like it had recently died. It best matches Mesocrangon genus in photos in my reference books.
