The Alabama crayfish, "Orconectes alabamensis" is a rare crayfish species found near the Buffalo.
Two genera of crickets ("Hadenoecus subterraneus") and ("Ceuthophilus stygius") ("Ceuthophilus latens"), a cave salamander ("Eurycea lucifuga"), two genera of eyeless cave fish ("Typhlichthys subterraneus") and ("Amblyopsis spelaea"), a cave crayfish ("Orconectes pellucidus"), and a cave shrimp ("Palaemonias ganteri")
To survive in an environment where food is scarce and oxygen levels are low, stygofauna often have very low metabolism. As a result, stygofauna may live longer than other terrestrial species. For example, the crayfish "Orconectes australis" of Shelta Cave in Alabama can reproduce at 100 years and live to 175.
Orconectes sloanii is a species of crayfish in the family Cambaridae, endemic to Indiana and Ohio. Although it is being slowly out-competed by the rusty crayfish, "Orconectes rusticus", it is listed as a species of Least Concern on the IUCN Red List.
This species is common to abundant. It faces minor threats in some parts of its range. It has been displaced by the rusty crayfish ("Orconectes rusticus"), a related species that is more aggressive and outcompetes other crayfish in its habitat. Other threats include water pollution, especially from mine runoff.
The rusty crayfish ("Orconectes rusticus") is a large, aggressive species of freshwater crayfish which is native to the United States. Its range is rapidly expanding in North America, displacing native crayfishes in the process: it is known to have reached New England, Ontario, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and even Manitoba. The rusty crayfish was first captured in Illinois in 1973, and has been collected at over 20 locations in the northern portion of the state. In 2005, "O. rusticus" was found for the first time west of the Continental Divide, in the John Day River, Oregon, which runs into the Columbia River.
The cave was entered on June 24 and 25, 2015, by five members of the Cave Research Foundation. The goal of this exploration was threefold: to ensure the stability of the current metal viewing platform, to assess the state of the lake and cave life, and to demonstrate that current equipment and methods would allow for the cave to be more thoroughly explored. As a result of this expedition, it was learned that waterproof two-way radios did not function well. In addition, two species of cave crayfish were identified: the southern cave crayfish ("Orconectes australis") and the Salem cave crayfish ("Cambarus hubrichti").
Crustacean reproduction varies both across and within species. The water flea "Daphnia pulex" alternates between sexual and parthenogenetic reproduction. Among the better-known large decapod crustaceans, some crayfish reproduce by parthenogensis. "Marmorkrebs" are parthenogenetic crayfish that were discovered in the pet trade in the 1990s. Offspring are genetically identical to the parent, indicating it reproduces by apomixis, i.e. parthenogenesis in which the eggs did not undergo meiosis. Spinycheek crayfish ("Orconectes limosus") can reproduce both sexually and by parthenogenesis. The Louisiana red swamp crayfish ("Procambarus clarkii"), which normally reproduces sexually, has also been suggested to reproduce by parthenogenesis, although no individuals of this species have been reared this way in the lab. "Artemia parthenogenetica" is a species or series of populations of parthenogenetic brine shrimps.
The river once included highly diverse habitat that supported mussel, crayfish, and fish communities. A 1994 survey of 66 locations on the river concluded that about a third of the streams in the river's watershed were devoid of aquatic life . The decline in aquatic life is believed by most biologists to be a result of acidic runoff from strip mining, as well as spills and contamination from petroleum and natural gas exploration in its watershed. The remaining freshwater crayfish population of the river comprises four extant species, including the principal population of the Indiana crayfish ("Orconectes indianensis"). In 1994 approximately of the river were designated as the Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge and Management Area, managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The refuge contains one of the most significant bottomland hardwood forests remaining in the state.
Amongst the invertebrates, typical insects of the Moist Mixed Grassland ecoregion are monarch ("Danaus plexippus"), mosquito ("Anopheles quadrimaculatus"), rose curculi, yellow jacket wasp ("Vespula pennsylvanica"), sow bug ("Malacostraca isopoda"), bumblebee ("Bombus ternarius"), blue-winged olive ("Ephemerella cornuta"), daddy longlegs ("Opiliones"), dragonfly, grasshopper ("Melanoplus differentialis"), harvester ant ("Pogonomyrmex"), and two-spotted lady beetle ("Adalia bipunctata"). Gardeners and horticulturists have identified various hemipterans during the growing season affecting their cash crop such as aphids, including the pea aphid ("Acyrthosiphon pisum"), English grain aphid ("Macrosiphum avenae"), and green peach aphid ("Myzus persicae"), spruce gall adelgid ("Adelges cooleyi"), pine needle scale ("Chionaspis pinifoliae"), tomato psyllid ("Bactericera cockerelli"), greenhouse whitefly ("Trialeurodes vaporariorum"), aster leafhopper ("Macrosteles quadrilineatus") alfalfa plant bug ("Adelphocoris lineolatus"), tarnished plant bug ("Lygus lineolaris"), and black grass bug ("Labops hesperius"). Freshwater invertebrates of Saskatchewan typically consist of clams ("Pelycypoda") ("Mollusca Bivalvia"), mollusca ("Gastropoda and Pelecypoda"), leech ("Hirudinea"), freshwater earthworm Oligochaeta, virile crayfish ("Orconectes virilis"), Scud ("Amphipoda"), fairy shrimp ("Anostraca"), Copepod, water flea ("Cladocera"), clam shrimp ("Conchostraca"), water mite ("Hydrachnida") caddisfly ("Trichoptera"), damselfly ("Zygoptera"), mayfly ("Ephemeroptera"), alderfly ("Megaloptera"), seed shrimp ("Ostracod"), and tadpole shrimp ("Notostraca").
