Tuscumbia Darter (Etheostoma tuscumbia)


The Tuscumbia Darter is restricted to vegetated springs and spring runs in the middle Tennessee River Drainage in northern Alabama. Both the common and scientific names are derived from the town of Tuscumbia, Alabama, which is the type locality for the species, or site from where the Tuscumbia Darter was described. Tuscumbia Darters have brown coloration with gold speckling.
