Stone Crayfish Austropotamobius torrentium

Description

My ID is just a reasonable assumption, since having seen a member of crayfish, Astacidea of fitting size in Badlbach for short moments.
Now i know why this was my first observation of this crustacean animal - it is quick as a fish in water, hiding below stones for usual, and leaving its hiding-places in the dark as short as necessary.
So i guess to have seen stone crayfish, but can't exclude that it was any related species.
There was no chance to take imgs. of the animal.

Description

This tiny hermit crab, less than an inch long in a dogwinkle shell, looks like it may be Pagurus granosimanus or Grainyhand Hermit. I've seen a lot of these on our beaches, but always the main color of the claws and legs is olive green with little turquoise spots. This one is so red! It does have orange antennae, a characteristic of the Grainyhand Hermit. Note there is a second hermit crab with the identical coloration, but smaller, in the lower right. I think it may be in a Black Turban shell.

Description

Hole near my neighbor's pond. Appeared to have been opened up by pushing out the mud from below. Also there is a raccoon track in the mud. It was smooth inside the hole, so I do not think the raccoon dug it out. Is this a crayfish hole?

Description from Wikipedia

Malacostraca is the largest of the six classes of crustaceans, containing over 25,000 extant species, divided among 16 orders. Its members display a greater diversity of body forms than any other class of animals, and include crabs, lobsters, shrimp, krill, woodlice, scuds (Amphipoda), mantis shrimp and many other less familiar animals. They are abundant in all marine environments and have also colonised freshwater and terrestrial habitats. They are united by a common Bauplan, comprising 20 body...
