Abstract

Examination of museum records and field observations have included 4 new records for species of crayfish in Oklahoma (Cambarellus puer, Orconectes deanae, O. lancifer, and O. macrus) and a new drainage record for O. neglectus neglectus. These records bring the number of crayfish known in Oklahoma to 28 and emphasize the importance of revisiting aquatic habitats in regions that have been visited previously. Such records can help in determining the conservation status of poorly known taxonomic groups.
