The cave-adapted crayfish, Orconectes (Orconectes) stygocaneyi sp. nov., is described from Mud Cave, Ozark County in south central Missouri, U.S.A. Orconectes stygocaneyi is the first stygobitic crayfish of the genus to be found west of the Mississippi River and is compared with other, related species of cave crayfishes. It is unique in that the mesial process of first pleopods of Form I males recurves cephalically toward the central projection. Figures are presented and a key to the stygobitic members of the genus Orconectes is provided.

L'écrevisse cavernicole, Orconectes (Orconectes) stygocaneyi sp. nov. est décrite de Mud Cave, Ozark County, dans le sud du Missouri central, U.S.A. Orconectes stygocaneyi est la première écrevisse stygobie du genre à avoir été trouvée à l'ouest du Mississippi et est comparée à d'autres espèces apparentées d'écrevisses cavernicoles. Elle est unique par le fait que le processus mésial des premiers pléopodes des mâles Form I est recourbé antérieurement vers la projection centrale. Des figures sont présentées et une clé des membres stygobies du genre Orconectes est fournie.
