ABSTRACT The Kentucky cave shrimp Palaemonias ganteri is known only from base level cave passages in the Mammoth Cave System, Kentucky. Since the shrimp was not seen between 1967 and 1979, it was assumed to be extinct. Between May 1979 and February 1981, 1 looked for shrimp in base level pools by searching visually or by seining and dip netting once a month. SCUBA divers on four occasions searched deep pools and submerged cave passages. No live shrimp were found in residual pools, where they were readily observed before 1967. A few shrimp were found in deep pools of streams and in submerged passages. Foraging at the water surface was observed.
