ix ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I was able to locate specimens of Nebraska crayfishes in two museums; The National Museum of Natural History and the Illinois Natural History Survey. Access to their online catalogs was much appreciated. Over the years, I received crayfish specimens from a number of Game and Parks personnel including Andy Glidden, Al Hanson, Joe Rydell, Tony Munter, Jeff Blaser, Gerry Coates, Darrel Hartman, Dean Rosenthal, Jay Francis, Gerald Mestl, Monte Madsen, Randy Winter and Scott Wessel. Summer aides have assisted in the collection of crayfishes when we were sampling streams for fishes. These have included: Baxter Poe, Josh Cloeter, Ryan McMahon, Kyle Charron, Dave Adams, Josh Kreitman, Larry Pape, Mike Wall, Cecilia King and Christopher Dietrich. I thank Jamie Kelley of the Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center for the report and photos of a Prairie crayfish. The 2003-2005 statewide stream fishery survey was conducted by students of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln under the guidance of Dr. Edward Peters. They preserved the crayfishes that they collected which they allowed me to examine and identify. The team leaders were Tony Barada, Jesse Fischer and Dane Schuman and I thank them. Other university personnel who provided crayfishes included Dr. Richard Stasiak (University of Nebraska at Omaha), Chelsea Pasbrig (University of Nebraska at Kearney) and Kelly Turek (University of Nebraska at Lincoln). Thank you all. I may have missed someone who provided specimens to me. If so, I apologize.
