Names for the strange creature are derived from its frog-like appearance and its enormous front pincers, which resemble spanners or wrenches. Spanner crab is a good choice for buyers concerned about sustainability, as the selective harvesting method eliminates bycatch. In Australia, the crabs are trapped in baited net bags known as dillies. Australian spanners are available year-round except for a month beginning at the end of November, when they spawn. Most of the spanner crabs harvested Down Under are exported as live product.

Particularly, spanner crab has a milder flavour than mud crab and has a fresh oceanic taste. The most common way to cook whole spanner crab is boiling or steaming for 12 or 13 minutes. Afterwards, immerse immediately in cold water to stop further cooking. The picked meat may be added to risottos, pasta dishes, salads, sandwiches, stir-fries, and other foods. Additionally, it functions well as a filling for Asian-style dumplings, and ravioli.
