Hi, guys!
These freshwater crustaceans are Aegla paulensis, and I found the common name cockroach crayfish in this page: http://fishopolis.wordpress.com/2010/09/30/cockroach-crayfish-aegla-platensis/
It seems that the genus Aegla is the sole member of the family Aeglidae and are endemic to South America.
Hope you enjoy it!

Hi Cesar,
When we first saw the subject line, we thought someone had found a Mole Cricket.  How wonderful to get a new posting of a Brazilian Crayfish from you.
