For the last five years, inventories have been carried out on the aquatic freshwater fauna of the Island of Réunion. Three Macrobrachium species have been captured: Macrobrachium lar (Fabricius, 1798), Macrobrachium australe (Guérin Méneville, 1838), and, for the first time on Réunion, Macrobrachium lepidactylus (Hilgendorf, 1879). A commentary follows, discussing the absence of Macrobrachium hirtimanus (Olivier, 1811) in the samples collected, despite the fact that it is an endemic species in the Mascarenes, and describing the ecological characteristics of the habitats of M. lepidactylus and M. hirtimanus.

Des inventaires de la faune aquatique d’eau douce de l’île de La Réunion ont été menés durant 5 années. Trois espèces de Macrobrachium ont été capturés: Macrobrachium lar (Fabricius, 1798), Macrobrachium australe (Guérin Méneville, 1838), et pour la première fois à la Réunion, Macrobrachium lepidactylus (Hilgendorf, 1879). L’absence dans les échantillons de Macrobrachium hirtimanus (Olivier, 1811), espèce endémique des Mascareignes, et les caractéristiques écologiques des biotopes de M. lepidactylus et de M. hirtimanus sont discutés.
