I encountered this protostome at a beach on the west coast of Florida. It is a sand-colored crab with very slight hints of orange. The body is slightly square, one of its claws is larger than the other, and it has protruding eyes. All of these point to it being a Ghost Crab https://www.britannica.com/animal/ghost-crab
