Cambarellus patzcuarensis

Sometimes affectionately known as the CPO or dwarf crayfish, C. patzcuarensis is a species of cambarid crayfish that occurs in several lake and spring systems in Mexico, most notably Lake Patzcuaro. Like other crayfish C. patzcuarensis is likely an omnivore and will feed on small invertebrates and plant material.

Currently C. patzcuarensis is listed as endangered and likely faces threats from over-collection for the aquarium trade and habitat loss.
