Favollo (Eriphia verrucosa) is the Italian word for warty crab, a variety of crab found throughout the Mediterranean Sea, also in the eastern Atlantic from the southern coast of Brittany to Mauritania and the Azores. Favollo has a thick carapace, slightly convex upper face, smooth, and with transverse ridges behind the frontal border and the lateral regions. Strong asymmetric chelipeds. Female has a large oval abdomen, while the male’s is narrow. Brownish-red or brownish-green in colour, with yellow spots. Favollo's flesh is aromatic and tasty, but few. However, it is a good ingredient for fish or seafood soups.
