Ammocrypta clara | Western Sand Darter

The Western Sand Darter inhabits the Mississippi River basin from Wisconsin and Minnesota south to Mississippi and Sabine and Neches river drainages, Texas; also in the Green, Cumberland, and Tennessee river drainages (presumably extinct in the first two); generally sporadic and rare (Williams 1975; Page and Burr 1991).

 

The Western Sand Darter is a new species we are working with as a possible larval food source for the Diamond Darter.
