. and Parastacidae, emerged much later, after the first terrestrial arthropods conquered land during the Silurian [443 to 419 million years ago (mya)], and are assumed to have their monophyletic origins during the Triassic period (185 to 22 mya) before Pangea split (Crandall et al.

Male crayfish of the family Cambaridae
(including all Tennessee species) exhibit a cycle of dimorphism in which they alternate from a reproductively active stale in which their gonads have longer, more pointed terminal elements (form I) to a reproductively inactive state in which the gonads have shorter, more blunt terminal elements (form II) (Taylor and Schuster.
These studies suggest that the ranges of chromosome number in freshwater crayfish families (Astacidae, Cambaridae
, and Parastacidae) are larger than that reported for palaemonoid prawn (Table 2).
