"TERRIBLE CLAW" Deep Water LOBSTER (Dinochelus ausubeli)
©Tin-Yam Chan, National Taiwan Ocean University, Keelung
Dinochelus ausubeli is a new species of deepwater lobster (family Nephropidae)  first collected in 2007 from the Philippine Sea off the island of Luzon  and was formally described in 2010.
The species is so distinct that it  was not only described as a new species but placed in a newly erected  genus as well (Dinochelus). "Dinochelus" is derived from the Greek dinos, meaning “terrible”, and chela, meaning “claw”, an allusion to the massive, spinose major claw. The specific epithet ausubeli honors  Jesse Ausubel, an enthusiastic sponsor of the Census of Marine Life, a  major effort to document marine life in the first decade of the 21st  century. (Ahyong et al. 2010)
