|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Reviewer(s):||Smith, K. & Darwall, W.R.T.|
|Facilitator/Compiler(s):||Hammerson, G.A. & Ormes, M.|
Listed as Least Concern in view of the moderate extent of occurrence, probably large population size, apparently stable trend, and lack of major threats.
|Range Description:||Range includes the Altamaha (locally common) and Ogeechee (uncommon) river drainages (Ocmulgee and Oconee river basins) Georgia (Gibbs 1955, Lee et al. 1980, Page and Burr 2011).|

Lee et al. (1980) mapped 21 collection sites. In Georgia, 19 documented occurrences of unknown condition (R. MacBeth, pers. comm., 1997).
Total adult population size is unknown but presumably exceeds 10,000. This species is common in preferred habitat in some areas.
This species was categorized as currently stable by Warren et al. (2000).
|Habitat and Ecology:||Habitat includes sandy and rocky runs of small to medium rivers (Page and Burr 2011). This shiner usually occurs in larger streams in open sand (usually) and/or gravel-bottomed channels with flowing water and little or no vegetation (Lee et al. 1980).|
|Major Threat(s):||No major threats currently exist. Potential threats include pollution, drought, and impoundments.|
|Conservation Actions:||Currently, this species is of relatively low conservation concern and does not require significant additional protection or major management, monitoring, or research action.|
