Tippecanoe Darter (Etheostoma tippecanoe)


The Tippecanoe Darter is found throughout the Ohio River Drainage, including the Cumberland River Drainage. Their populations are heavily fragmented throughout their range due to reservoir construction. They are found in runs and riffles of large streams and rivers. Its maximum size is only 1.75 inches. Tippecanoe Darters have an overall orange coloration with dark bars on the back of their body.
