Tombigbee Darter (Etheostoma lachneri)


As the common name suggests, the Tombigbee Darter is found in the Tombigbee River System of Alabama and Mississippi. Like many members of the Snubnose Darter group, they have blunt snouts, and they reside in the transition zone from pools to riffles. Breeding males have orange coloration on their side and belly with blue bars and fins.
