Re: NFC: Luxilus cardinalis
Was that for the disjunct population located in the Flint Hills
only? Or is the Cardinal Shiner simply a recently new classification

already aware) exist here. One, in the Spring River and Shoal Creek of
extreme SW Kansas, and the disjunct population in the Flint Hills region.
