Population Structure and Life History Characteristics of the

upper parts of the burrows of a larger crayfish species, Geocharax falcata Clark (Johnston and Robson 2009a). This appears to be an adaptation to survive wetland drying, but as there are few examples of commensalisms among crayfish and few studies of freshwater crayfish population biology in seasonally-dry habitats, little is

of commensal relationships between pholeteric Figler 1996

study indicates that members of G. insolitus are commensal upon larger crayfish species, using their burrows to survive the seasonal drying of their habitat. Conservation strategies for populations of G. insolitus will need to consider co-existing species of burrowing crayfish. Additional key words: drought refuges, Decapoda
