Male, female, and juvenile crayfish (Orconectes virilis) were introduced individually to test arenas containing a clean shelter and a shelter that had been previously occupied by a male, female, or juvenile conspecific. Males avoided shelters that had been occupied by males, females were attracted to shelters that had been occupied by females, and juveniles were attracted to shelters that had been occupied by juveniles. Significantly more males, females, and juveniles failed to occupy any shelter when the arena had been occupied previously by male conspecifics compared to when the arena had been occupied previously by female (for male and female subjects) or juvenile (for juveniles) conspecifics.
