|Scientific Name:||Etheostoma basilare Page, Hardman, and Near, 2003|
|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.|
Small extent of occurrence, but listed as Least Concern in view of the large number of subpopulations, probable large population size, apparently stable trend, and lack of major threats.
|Range Description:||Range includes upper Caney Fork system (Collins River and Caney Fork), Cumberland River drainage, central Tennessee (Page et al. 2003).|
|Range Map:||Click here to open the map viewer and explore range.|
|Population:||Page et al. (2003) mapped 19 collection sites in about 9 different streams.|
This species is locally common (Page et al. 2003).
Trend over the past 10 years or three generations is uncertain but likely relatively stable.
|Current Population Trend:||Stable|
|Habitat and Ecology:||Habitat includes rocky pools of headwaters, creeks, and small to medium rivers (Page and Burr 2011); small bedrock creeks (under flat rocks), gravel bottom pools and gentle riffles of larger streams (small to medium rivers); in larger streams, this darter often is associated with emergent vegetation or occurs under tree roots or undercut banks; it also occurs in slower riffles and gravel pools with no cover. Eggs are laid on the underside of large stones (Page 1983).|
|Movement patterns:||Not a Migrant|
|Major Threat(s):||No major threats are known.|
|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.|
