CommentsSpecies ID updated on 11/16/2023-“Specimens collected during the surveys were originally believed to be Orconectes neglectus neglectus (Faxon, 1885), partially due to this invasive species' presence in Oregon's Rogue River drainage (Bouchard, 1977), but re-examination by the authors identified these crayfish as O. rusticus. This identification was verified by Dr. Christopher Taylor (University of Illinois) on 10 December 2008 and voucher specimens have been deposited at the Illinois Natural History Survey, Champaign, IL.” Olden et al. 2009
