A maximum size and abundance record for Cambarus subterraneus (Astacoidea: Cambaridae), 2013, Fenolio Dante, Niemiller Matthew L, Soares Daphne, Slay Michael E, Stark Richard C, Hensley Steve L

The Delaware County Cave Crayfish, Cambarus subterraneus is restricted to just three caves within a small region of the Neosho River watershed of Delaware Co., Oklahoma, USA.  Few individuals are typically observed during surveys of the three caves.  This species is listed as ‘Critically Imperiled’ by NatureServe and ‘Critically Endangered’ by IUCN.  We observed an exceptionally large female in Twin Cave, Delaware Co., OK; we also recorded a record count in the system.  Based on our observations at Twin Cave, we think this population is healthy with continued recruitment and with some individuals attaining large sizes and presumably old ages.

Subterranean reproduction of the Ringed Crayfish, Orconectes neglectus Faxon 1885 (Astacoidea: Cambaridae) within an Ozark Highlands cave in Oklahoma, USA, 2013, Fenolio Dante, Niemiller Matthew L, Soares Daphne, Slay Michael E, Harris Andy, Harris Nate

A new threat to groundwater ecosystems: first occurrences of the invasive crayfish Procambarus clarkii (Girard, 1852) in European caves., 2014, Mazza G. , Reboleira A. S. P. S. , Gonc¸alves F. , Aquiloni L. , Inghilesi A. F. , Spigoli D. , Stoch F. , Taiti S. , Gherardi F. , Tricarico E.

The American red swamp crayfish, Procambarus clarkii, is today the alien species most widespread in European water bodies. This invasive crayfish was found for the first time in some caves of Europe, specifically in Portugal and Italy. The presence of P. clarkii in caves is noteworthy, representing a new threat for the groundwater ecosystems due to the possible negative impacts on the native communities.
