|Scientific Name:||Etheostoma luteovinctum|
|Species Authority:||Gilbert & Swain, 1887|
|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.|
Somewhat small extent of occurrence, but listed as Least Concern in view of the fairly large number of subpopulations, large population size, apparently stable trend, and lack of major threats.
|Range Description:||Range includes Stones River and Collins River (Cumberland River drainage), and Duck River and Elk River (Tennessee River drainage), central Tennessee (Page and Burr 2011).|

Etnier and Starnes (1993) mapped at least 50 collection sites that represent probably at least a few dozen distinct occurrences.
Total adult population size is unknown but presumably exceeds 10,000. This darter is fairly common in the Duck River, rare elsewhere (Page and Burr 1991); fairly widespread in the Duck River, common in headwaters of the Caney Fork system, localized in the Stones River system (Etnier and Starnes 1993).
Trend over the past 10 years or three generations is uncertain but likely relatively stable.
|Habitat and Ecology:||Habitat includes shallow rocky pools of headwaters, creeks, and small rivers, including springs and spring-fed brooks; near springs, this darter occurs: in both pools and riffles, often it is associated with algae and aquatic plants. In small streams, in occurs in gravel and rubble riffles in spring, deep pools in summer (Lee et al. 1980, Kuehne and Barbour 1983, Page and Burr 2011). Spawning occurs probably in shallow gravel riffles (Page 1983).|
|Major Threat(s):||No major threats are known (Etnier and Starnes 1993).|
|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.|
