As the common name suggests, the Conasauga Logperch is a federally endangered species found in the Conasauga River System of the Mobile Basin in Georgia and Tennessee. They live over gravel substrate in runs of medium rivers. As with other members of the logperch group, Conasauga Logperches have a pointed snout that they use to flip over rocks for feeding.
