I caught this one at snapper creek, it doesn't look like the c. Depressus or destructor, so im thinking is a cherax dispar?

His claws are alot darker than his abdomen so could it be?

I have no idea, the only cherax we get in the Melbourne area is c.destructor.

If you haven't already, this is a great website with great pics and info on crayfish. I've been fortunate enough to meet & receive crayfishes from one of the gurus on that website who are responsible for undertaking the 'crayfish project surveys' :)
