I trust that the members of this Society may be interested
in a few remarks, which I have to make upon the distribution
and habits of the large fresh-water crayfish which is so
common upon the north side of the island.
I am not aware that this has been specifically described by
naturalists, although its unusually large size, abundance in
certain localities, estimation as a delicacy for the table, added
to its facility of capture and observation should long since
have acquired for it that attention at their hands.
