Abstract

A new crayfish, Orconectes pagei, is described from northern and eastern flowing tributaries of the Tennessee River in western Tennessee. The species occurs in small to medium streams with sand substrate. Form I males of O. pagei differ from all other members of the genus Orconectes in being both pigmented and possessing a first pleopod with a short, laterally flattened central projection and a short, dorsoventrally flattened mesial process.
