Spider crab

We went to Redondo/Captain Kids today for my steamed
crab fix. I always order the dugneness crab and I'm never disappointed. Today they were offering a different crab that I had never seen there before. It was much larger than the dungeness, was kind of a red color and had spots on it. The body was more rounded. I was told it was a spider crab and it was cheaper than the dungeness. Can you tell me how this differs in taste? It looked as though it would be a lot meatier. Is it sweeter? I'd love to try it but am skeptical. Any info?
