Procambarus angustatus has been assessed as Extinct. This species is only known from a single specimen collected from a vaguely described type locality in Georgia. Despite thorough searches of this site and throughout its known range and habitat this species has not been found since, it is therefore considered globally extinct.
This species was known historically only from a single type specimen from an extremely vague type locality in Georgia, USA (Hobbs 1958). "It lives in lesser Georgia, in the rivulets of pure water which flow between little sand hills" (LeConte 1856). Hobbs (1981) notes it was known only from streams in the Sand Hills of southern Georgia. It is considered globally extinct.
