Eastrim Darter (Etheostoma orientale)


The common name of the Eastrim Darter refers to their distribution restricted to the Cumberland River Drainage on the east side of the Highland Rim physiographic province. They live in rocky pools with bedrock substrate. They have a bright red dot in the first membrane of their first dorsal fin, and like many members of the Snubnose Darter group, their snouts are very blunt.
