It is distributed from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, Taiwan, and Japan, and is more drought tolerant than other hermit crabs

It lives in wooded areas closer to the inland, and often forages in jungles or rocks at night, and is omnivorous. In order to live inland, they usually live in the shells of African giant snails

They vary in color from dark brown to dark red or a mixture of colors, but their tentacles are usually red. The eyes have a slight curvature, which is not found in other hermit crabs
