|Scientific Name:||Percina nigrofasciata|
|Species Authority:||(Agassiz, 1854)|
Hadropterus nigrofasciatus Agassiz, 1854
|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:||Atlantic and Gulf slope drainages from Edisto River, South Carolina, south into south-central Florida (almost to Lake Okeechobee) and west to Mississippi River, Louisiana; the most common darter throughout most of range, but absent in St. Marys and Satilla rivers in southeastern Georgia and rare in Altamaha River, Georgia (Page and Burr 1991).|

|Habitat and Ecology:||Headwaters to medium-sized rivers, over sandy, gravelly, or rocky bottom, also over mud and silt in lower Coastal Plain; often associated with aquatic vegetation.|
|Major Threat(s):||Localized threats may exist, but on a range-wide scale 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.|
