Abstract

A new species of the freshwater crayfish genus Euastacus, E. mirangudjin, is described from northeastern New South Wales. The species most closely resembles E. reductus Riek 1969, differing in spination of the chelae and in colouration. The species is recorded only from the type locality, in Toonumbar National Park, where it inhabits the rocky edges of Iron Pot Creek.
