1. Beide Geschlechter und alle Individuengrößen der Krabben Libinia emarginata fressen Asterias forbesi. 2. Dieses Räuber-Beute-Verhältnis ist charakterisiert dadurch, daß Asterias forbesi ihre Arme autotomisieren. 3. Die Krabben fressen soviel A. forbesi, daß sie ihren Basalbedarf decken. 4. Das Ausmaß, welches diese Räuber-Beute-Beziehung im Meer erlangt, ist ungeklärt. Möglicherweise nimmt es zu während der Häutungsperiode, weil die Krabben dann erhöhte Kalzium-Mengen benötigen.
