The authors note the occurrence of Macrobrachium carcinus (Linnaeus, 1758) and Macrobrachium olfersii (Wiegmann, 1836) in Mississippi, U.S.A. No specimens of the former species and only one specimen of the latter species have been previously reported in the scientific literature from waters of the northern Gulf of Mexico east of Texas, U.S.A. It is suggested that probably neither species is a recent immigrant to the northcentral Gulf of Mexico. The authors feel it is unlikely that significant populations of these two species live in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.
