Cherax cainii is a large freshwater crayfish found in the south-west corner of Australia. The species have been identified as smooth marron and this is being assessed. Cherax cainii occupies a wide range within the southwestern bioregion of Western Australia. It is a commercial species that has been introduced to aquatic systems outside the isolated biogeographical region. It has also been used to restock the Margaret River area, and threatens to displace the endemic 'Hairy Marron' (Cherax tenuimanus).
