|In the same section of stream are Euastacus armatus , in fact I caught an E. armatus in the
same net at the same time as one of the new species (this is unusual form my experience). It was late autumn before
the major bushfires! I have been back to the site about a year after the fires and it was completely burnt out.
All the vegetation had been burnt, however, there was regeneration in the Eucalypts and some understory plants
were sprouting. There was a huge sediment load in the creek and no sign of any crayfish although I only had a day
there. I look forward to shearching for these crays again and hope a few more years of recovery will see the habitat
and the cray recover.
