Population dynamics of the kelp crab Pugettia quadridens, a potential predator of juvenile abalone, were investigated on the coast of Nagai, Sagami Bay, to examine its cryptic ontogenetic habitat shift. Monthly quantitative sampling over 2 years, which was carried out in 11 different subtidal habitats (< 0.1–8 m deep), revealed that P. quadridens changes ontogenetically according to its habitat: P. quadridens occurred in shallow lower subtidal (1–4 m) small red algal turfs (mainly Grateoloupia… Expand
