The devil herself

She-Devil movie posterThread title is taken from a caption underneath a picture of Marmorkrebs in an excellent post over at the Amphidrome blog about the recent discovery of Marmorkrebs in Madagascar. In particular, it notes of the native Madagascar crayfish species, which belong to the genus Astacoides:

(H)abitat loss and overharvesting have hit (Astacoides) crosnieri and A. petiti hard enough to earn them endangered status on the IUCN Red List.

Many good references there, too.
