This is one of four terrestrial Cherax crayfish that the ACP is researching. Cherax sp 1 from the Murray River is currently under description. Cherax rotundus from Fletcher Qld has had 2 papers published and research is ongoing. Cherax setosus from the Newcastle region NSW has just been redescribed and that only leaves Cherax punctatus. All Queensland Cherax species are currently under review by the ACP with a full review and revision of all species is due by 2013.
