The Prairie crayfish has only been found in far southeastern Wisconsin (Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, Kenosha, and Walworth Counties). This leaves only six species likely to be present in the remainder of the state. The three most commonly found species are the Virile crayfish, the Northern Clearwater crayfish, and the Rusty crayfish. These three species typically comprise more than 90% of specimens in crayfish collections.
