RE: NFC: Unidentified Pupfish

I'm responding to you AND the NFC list-

rangewise, there are no pupfish in Utah natively.  Of course, they could
have been introduced from anywhere.

I really know of no pupfish (like I'm an expert) that has BOTH genders blue
with stripes.  Usually, it's the males that show the color.  Perhaps you
could do what Robert Rice sugests- send a digital picture to me and I'll
post it for review.

Have you looked in the Petersons Field Guide John. Im not to up on
Pupfish but the field guide should be an ez ID tool. Heck their arent
that many pupfish in the Salt Lake area are there ? Can you scan a
picture of one ?
