Pinch me

This is another undescribed decapod from the Tupelo Bay Formation. I've found over a dozen of them over the years ranging from an inch across to over 5 inches. I rarely find individual pieces. They're almost always complete. Another interesting fact about this species is that all of the ones I've found have been male.
