Short description Morphology

Known as "king", "rose", or "hump", it is superficially similar to P. danae except that it is blotched, redder in color and larger. As in P. danae the body is stout and the shell hard, but the surface is smooth and the carapace strongly arched dorsally. There are 17 to 22 dorsal spines which occupy the anterior three fifths of the carapace and extend an equal distance on the rostrum. The distal portion of the rostrum is strongly ascending and unarmed, except at the tip, which is oblique and armed with three immovable spines.
