with little or no success. Would greatly appreciate any info or
suggestions where I might search for literature. Konrad has provided a
photo in our gallery but I'm unable to find any further reference.
Trying to determine if this is the 'redfin" we seined in Central
Pennsylvania streams durring the 60's? Also hoping to obtain about a
dozen for a split breeding group. Any leeds or info would be most
welcome. TIA      Joe Eisenhart--State College, PA

The Kansas population has only recently been reclassified as L. cardinalis.

Older collections (older than the last 10 years or so) were ID'd,
catalogued, and written up as Duskystripe Shiners (Notropis pilsbryi).  I'm
not sure when the taxonomic revision was proposed or if it was widespread
(beyond the Kansas segment of the range).
