New Guinea Cherax

These photos are from Shiro Nisimura and Masanobu Hirata in Japan, I am not 100 percent sure of the species identification here so your help would be appreciated. Thank-you for your contribution Shiro and Masanobu.


I have no doubt that my Japanese friends have identified these species to the best of their ability, but translations between us are not too good, until things are more definitive please use this as a guide.

Shiro beleives this is Cherax lorentzii

This is reported as Cherax albertisii
