and bubbler crabs (or sand-bubblers) are crabs of the genera Scopimera and Dotilla in the family Dotillidae.

They are small crabs that live on sandy beaches in the tropical Indo-Pacific.

They feed by filtering sand through their mouthparts, leaving behind balls of sand that are disintegrated by the incoming high tide.

Sand bubbler crabs are small crabs, around 1 cm (0.4 in) across the carapace, and they are characterised by the presence of "gas windows" on the merus of the legs.
