Des observations de laboratoire ont montré que le crabe Menippe mercenaria (Say) peut avoir plus de dix émissions d'oeufs viables pendant une seule époque, entre les phases périodiques durant lesquelles le crabe rejette sa carapace. Ceci indique donc que les spermatozoïdes demeurent vivants à l'intérieur de la spermathèque pendant un temps très long. L'examen histologique a révélé que des spermatozoïdes vivants se trouvaient dans la spermathèque d'une femelle isolée qui avait rejetté sa carapace sans copulation ultérieure.
