Species Notes for this Location:
Procaambarus clarkii is native to Central Rio Bravo and its tributary, Rio Salado, in Chihuahua,
Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, and Tamaulipas. The Sierra Madre Oriental and the Meseta del Norte,
with elevations of 1,000 or more m above sea level, provide barriers that have inhibited more western natural dispersion. P. clarkii is exotic in central-west Tamaulipas, central Nuevo Leon, western Chihuahua, Sonora, and Baja California (Campos & Rodriguez-Almaraz, 1992).
