Specimens of the three known Greek crayfish species, Astacus astacus (Linnaeus, 1758), Astacus leptodactylus Eschscholtz, 1823 and Austropotamobius torrentium (Schrank, 1803), were collected from seven localities in Greece and were examined for the epibionts of Branchiobdella sp. (Annelida: Clitellata) and the aelosomatid Hystricosoma chappuisi Michaelsen, 1926 and the copepod Nitocrella divaricata (Chappuis, 1923). As a result, three branchiobdellid species, Branchiobdella parasita (Braun…

The Genus Branchiobdella Odier , 1823 ( Annelida , Clitellata , Branchiobdellida ) : a Review of its European Species

A revised synonymy, information about type material, type locality and characteristic morphological features are presented for each species, and the main available data concerning localities on the host, coexistence with other Branchiobdella species on the same host, and geographical distribution are reviewed.

Annelid symbiont assemblage and European stone crayfish − a deterministic relationship with implications for conservation management

It is demonstrated that the crayfish–epibionts relationship includes structural and functional complexities that can be important for defining management units in future conservation policies.

Epifauna of native and alien freshwater crayfish species (Crustacea:Decapoda): a host-specific community?

Investigation of epifauna on 3 native and 2 alien freshwater crayfish collected in Croatia indicated differences in the epifaunal assemblage between native and alien crayfishes that suggest the possibility of a specific connection betweenEpifauna and hosts.

Occurrence of Branchiobdellida (Annelida: Clitellata) on freshwater crayfish in Croatia

This investigation used preserved freshwater crayfish collected from across Croatia between 1995 and 2005 as its source of the ectosymbionts and found only native European species of branchiobdellids, including B. italica, in Croatia.

DISTRIBUTION, RECENT MORTALITIES AND CONSERVATION MEASURES OF CRAYFISH IN HELLENIC FRESH WATERS

There is a lot of work to be done on geographic distribution, population dynamics, genetics, reproduction, nutrition, diseases, and farming of crayfish species in Greece, and several actions should be undertaken to reform the existing legislation in order to protect the native species and their habitats.

The finding of crayfish so deep inside a cave system is unusual, and is probably the deepest record so far in Europe and North America.
