Re: bulkheads etc
Nice fundulid collection, Chip! Your unidentified species would be luciae if
it has a think dark line dorsally running from the head to the origin of the
dorsal fin, and if the fish is absolutely dull in the light when you pull it
out of water as opposed to the way most fish glisten in the light. Also,
luciae are almost always found over and in shallow marsh muds where you
couldn't imagine most fish would go...
The majalis have a long pointed head and generally appear much sleeker than
heteroclitus although 'bout the same size.
