|Scientific Name:||Notropis shumardi (Girard, 1856)|
Alburnops shumardi Girard, 1856
|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 large extent of occurrence, large number of subpopulations, large population size, and lack of major threats. Trend over the past 10 years or three generations is uncertain but likely relatively stable, or the species may be declining but not fast enough to qualify for any of the threatened categories under Criterion A (reduction in population size).
|Range Description:||Mississippi River and main tributaries (mainly Missouri, Illinois, Kaskaskia, lower Ohio, Arkansas, and Red rivers), Louisiana to Illinois and South Dakota; several Gulf slope drainages from Sabine Lake (apparently introduced) to Colorado River, Texas; fairly common (Lee et al. 1980, Page and Burr 1991).|

|Habitat and Ecology:||Characteristically in flowing pools and runs of large turbid rivers over mixed sand, gravel, silt, and mud bottom.|
|Movement patterns:||Not a Migrant|
|Major Threat(s):||Localized threats may exist, but on a range-wide scale no major threats are known.|
