Abstract

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.
