Taxonomic Validation for Crustacean species on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Category 2 Species list, brdsar0004

Metadata Updated: August 15, 2019

The species indicated on the list are valid, none are synonymous with other taxa, and the taxonomic status of each represents the present understanding of their taxonomic validity as reflected in their nomenclature (i.e., there are no potentially polytypic species). Except for two typographical errors in the spelling of a family name [Cambaridae (not Camabaridae) for Orconectes williamsi] and one species name [Cambarus hiwasseensis (not hiwassensis)], indicated on the species list, the spellings are correct. None are in need of taxonomic studies, although some should be reevaluated in terms of their presently known ranges to ascertain if they should remain as candidates on the federal list. Notes concerning the 40 species on the list are enclosed.
