Bedrock Shiner (Notropis rupestris)


The Bedrock Shiner is found in the middle Cumberland River Drainage and upper Duck River System in central Tennessee. As the common name suggests, Bedrock Shiners are found in bedrock pools of headwaters to small rivers. Like many other species in the genus Notropis, Bedrock Shiners have a pattern on their lateral line scales that resembles cross-stitching.
