ABSTRACT Electrophoretic and immunochemical techniques were used to investigate structural similarities among haemocyanins of six genera of Australian parastacid crayfish. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis showed that 10 species from the genera Cherax, Euastacus, Astacopsis, Engaeus, and Gramastacus resembled Cherax destructor, with 17S and 25S polymers accounting for at least 80% of the haemocyanin components present in serum. Geocharax was unique in lacking the 17S component. Estimates of antigenic similarity among parastacid haemocyanins depart from the phylogenetic scheme of Riek (1972) in the transposition of the genera Cherax and Engaeus. This discrepancy should serve to reopen interest in the phylogeny of the Parastacidae.
