The Australian Cherax destructor is one of the last alien crayfish introduced in Italy. In the Laghi di Ninfa Natural Reserve (Latium region, Central Italy), the species was probably introduced in 1999 but was only reported for the first time in 2008. However, after a few years this population disappeared. Near this area, the invasive red swamp crayfish Procambarus clarkii is present and was probably responsible for this eradication. Cherax destructor is vulnerable to crayfish plague, which was detected in the area carried by P. clarkii. An ecosystem restoration project in the area favoured the spread of P. clarkii and crayfish plague. View this paper.
