This is a species of swamp streams and lowland habitats in Ohio. It prefers low gradient streams with mud or clay bottoms and is found primarily in the glaciated northern portions of the state. It is wide spread in the States. Additional information about this species can be found at
http://www.conservation.state.mo.us/nathis/arthopo/crayfish/crayfish.htm The specimen pictured here was collected by Foster Purrington. Foster is helping me with a study of Orconectes indianensis in Indiana. He collected it when he was visiting his home town of New Bedford, Massachusetts. They are an introduced species in the New England area of the United States. This is a large first form male that displays well the species characteristics of long, skinny, chela fingers.
