Scylla serrata (known as mud crab, or more ambiguously as mangrove crab or black crab) is an economically important crab species found in the estuaries and mangroves of Africa, Australia and Asia. In their most common form, the shell color varies from a deep, mottled green to very dark brown.

Generally cooked with their shells on, when they molt their shells, they can be served as a seafood delicacy as one of many types of soft shell crab. They are among the tastiest crab species and have a huge demand in Southeast Asian countries where they are often bought alive in the markets.

In the northern states of Australia, and especially Queensland, mud crabs are relatively common and generally prized above other seafood within the general public.
