Description: Fallicambarus gordoni, a crayfish found only in pitcher-plant bogs, is restricted to the DeSoto National Forest, Perry County, Mississippi, U.S.A. The species is active from late fall through late spring, and apparentiy estivates during the summer when bogs are dry. Ovigerous females were found in late fall and winter, and small juveniles were collected in February. Form I males were found throughout much of the year, except during summer months when no crayfish were collected. Burrows of F. gordoniare complex and similar in structure to those of Fallicambarus fodiem. Catch per unit effort ranged from 0.02-O. 17, suggesting that counting burrow structures will not give an accurate population estimate of this imperiledanimal.
