TypesHolotype, allotype, and morphotype, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. 101289, 101290, 101291 (male I, female, male II); paratypes, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Instituto de Biologia de la Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico, Department of Zoology, Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C.
Type LocalityCedar Creek, 3 miles (4.8 km) east of Lykes, Richland County, South Carolina, on U.S. Highway 76.
Range"From the Wateree River in South Carolina south to the Canoochee River in Georgia" (Hobbs, 1974b:55). The range is in need of further investigation; see "Remarks" below.
RemarksProcambarus (O.) chacei was synonymized with P. (O.) enoplosternum Hobbs by Hobbs (1981:388); the reasons cited were presented on page 398. On the basis of additional materials from South Carolina, there is reason to question this action; therefore, P. (O.) chacei is retained herein tentatively.
