Crab Apple- Green Crab and Blue Crab

Here are two different Crab Apples to immitaite two different species. The Brown one at the top is the one already posted and is the Mud or Brown crab... The carapace is large.. Aside from the different colors and length of the claws the distinctive feature is the shape of the carapaces... the green...stubby in width but longer from head to tail... and the blue is long in width but thin from head to tail. George Roberts book and Saltwater imitations is the source for me to see the differences side by side.
