Lukhaup C, Panteleit J, Schrimpf A - Zookeys (2015)

Bottom Line: A new species, Cherax snowden sp. n., from the Oinsok River Drainage, Sawiat District in the central part of the Kepala Burung (Vogelkop) Peninsula, West Papua, Indonesia, is described, figured and compared with the closest related species, Cherax holthuisi Lukhaup & Pekny, 2006.This species is collected and exported for ornamental purposes and its commercial name in the pet trade is "orange tip" or "green orange tip".Both species may be easily distinguished morphologically or by using sequence divergence, which is substantial, for considering Cherax snowden sp. n. to be a new species.
