Range Description

This species is known from the upper Broad River basin in the northern part of South Carolina westward into North Carolina and Tennessee (south of the French Broad River) almost to the Tennessee River, USA (Dewees 1972). It also exists in the Little Tennessee River basin (Cooper and Braswell 1998). Hobbs (1989) and Taylor et al. (1996) both list the range as South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee. Eversole and Jones (2004) include the upper Broad River basin in northern South Carolina westward into North Carolina and Tennessee almost to the Tennessee River. Furthermore, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia records are assigned to Cambarus dubius, a former subspecies (Hobbs 1989). Although not yet collected in Georgia, further collecting effort may reveal occurrences in the extreme northeastern part of the state (R. Thoma, T. Jones and J. Cordeiro, pers. comm. 2009). The extent of occurrence of this species is estimated to be almost 39,000 km.
