Population [top]

Population:This species is represented by a fairly large number of occurrences (subpopulations). On a coarse scale, Ceas and Page (1997) mapped 16 collection sites.

Total adult population size is unknown but presumably exceeds 10,000. This darter is common (Page and Burr 2011).

Trend over the past 10 years or three generations is uncertain but likely relatively stable. Brooks Burr and Pat Ceas collected sites recently and the populations appear to be stable (Mel Warren, pers. comm., 1999).
Current Population Trend:Stable
