Cambarus (Cambarus) bartonii carinirostrisKeith A. Crandall, James W. Fetzner, Jr., and Horton H. Hobbs, Jr.
Types"Type" and paratypes, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. 23962 (male I, 7 male II, 15 female); paratypes, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 7399 (male I, male II, female).
RangeTributaries of the Cheat, Greenbrier, and Tygart rivers in West Virginia and widespread in eastern Ohio. Exact range not known.
RemarksBoth Ortmann (1931) and Hobbs (1972b) have remarked on the advisability of recognizing this subspecies, and the latter indicated that "it is questionable that this subspecies should be recognized." Bouchard (1976b:587) recognized no subspecies of Cambarus (C.) bartonii and placed Hay's C. (C.) bartonii carinirostris and C. (C.) bartonii cavatus in synonomy with this species. Inasmuch as Jezerinac (1983) and Thoma (1982), who are currently investigating the subspecies of Cambarus bartonii, continue to recognize the two non-nominate subspecies, the two taxa are provisionally retained herein.
