coral eating crab?

i recently have had 2 ricordea mushrooms get eaten by something nocturnal, found this crab in there finally, any ideas what he is or if it could be the culprit?

Not sure about what it's called, but it's been on the boards several times and the black pincer is a sure sign that it's not good for the tank any ways. Good catch and i hope that's it.

picture is blurry, but it appears he only has 1 claw?

the black, sharp claw is a tell tale sign of a problem but maybe something else picked on him?
