White River Crawfish (White River Crayfish)
Adults of this species are usually a deep burgundy red with a black V-shaped stripe on the abdomen. Juveniles are gray with dark spots scattered over the carapace. The pincers are long and narrow. The carapace is separated at its middle by a space (areola). The carapace is conspicuously granular (roughened) in adults. The White River crawfish resembles the red swamp crawfish, but the latter lacks an areola. Also, young of the red swamp crawfish are usually plain or striped, not spotted.
