Papershell Crayfish (Calico Crayfish)

Photo of a papershell crayfish, also called calico crayfish.

The papershell crayfish — usually only found in the northern half of the state — is rather plain: gray-green with a pale central zone along the middle of the carapace and abdomen. The pincers are orange-tipped, and in mature males are tinged with purple.
