Parthenogenesis in an outsider crayfish
TLDR
By virtue of its parthenogenetic reproduction, the marbled crayfish emerges not only as an interesting laboratory model but also as a potential ecological threat in that it could outcompete native forms should even a single specimen be released into European rivers.
Cherax (Cherax) holthuisi, a new species of crayfish (Crustacea: Decapoda: Parastacidae) from the centre of the Vogelkop Peninsula in Irian Jaya (West New Guinea), Indonesia
A new species of crayfish, Cherax (Cherax) holthuisi spec. nov., is described and illustrated on the basis of nine specimens collected from Aitinjo Lake, Irian Jaya, Indonesia.
Ecology: Parthenogenesis in an outsider crayfish
TLDR
By virtue of its parthenogenetic reproduction, the marbled crayfish emerges not only as an interesting laboratory model but also as a potential ecological threat in that it could outcompete native forms should even a single specimen be released into European lakes and rivers.
Parthenogenetic Alien Crayfish (Decapoda: cambaridae) Spreading in Madagascar
TLDR
The invaders are determined as the parthenogenetic Marmorkrebs (marbled crayfish) (Cambaridae: Decapoda) on the basis of morphological features and the fact that all collected specimens were females regardless of their size.

Morphological characterization and genotyping of the marbled crayfish and new evidence on its origin.
TLDR
Analysis of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene (COI) and nuclear microsatellites of marbled crayfish and Procambarus fallax from different sources indicated that the tri-allelic microsatellite PclG-02 is better suitable than COI to identify the marbledcrayfish.
