Title:Orconectes virilis and Orconectes rusticus collection in West Virginia.
CommentsPrimary collection number: 100514-06. "Stream channelization with heavy anthropogenicpogenic impacts. No slabs present; concrete sections and snags only available habitat. Anthro reference. Ovigerous Oconectes taken from cavity in log. Cambarus absent from site likely due to complete lack of appropriate habitats. Stream disturbance level indicative of Orconectes preference. Only Cambarus cavatus collected was a juvenile."
