Despite Australia having a high diversity of freshwater crayfish species, the ecology of many of these species remains poorly known, particularly burrowing crayfish of the genus Engaeus. Biological information on colour, behaviour, burrow structure, associated burrow fauna and habitat of the East Gippsland Burrowing Crayfish Engaeus orientalis obtained during incidental observations in 2007 and 2008 is provided. The burrow structure took the form of radiating runways under a rock slab, while the burrow location was in a semi-disturbed site away from water. Both are atypical for this species.
