This small, tan crayfish has a pattern of paired blackish dashes along the surface of the carapace and abdomen. The pincers are narrow and cylindrical, with short, abruptly tapering fingers. Sometimes called the shield crayfish, in our state, it's found only only in the southeast, from Ripley County to southern Bollinger County.
