Stargazing Minnow (Phenacobius uranops)


The Stargazing Minnow is found in the Tennessee, Cumberland, and Green river drainages of the Ohio River Drainage in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia. They live in rocky riffles of creeks to medium rivers. Like other members of the genus Phenacobius, Stargazing Minnows resemble small suckers (family Catostomidae) with a long and cylindrical body, as well as fleshy lips.
