The rusty crayfish Orconectes rusticus, from here.


Belongs within: Astacura.
Contains: Cambarus, Procambarus.

The Astacida are the freshwater crayfish. They are divisible between the Northern Hemisphere Astacoidea and the Southern Hemisphere Parastacoidea (Martin & Davis 2001).

Synapomorphies (from Dixon et al. 2003): Gastrulation an invagination process showing a ring of about forty ectoteloblasts; development direct. Ischium-merus boundary of first pereiopod perpendicular; no median ridge or suture in posterior carapace; soft cuticle present in distal part of telson.
