Both Kansas populations are L. cardinalis. They are morphologically
distinguished from Notropis pilsbryi (now Luxilis pilsbryi) by scale counts
and number of gill rakers on the 1st arch.

Was that for the disjunct population located in the Flint Hills
only? Or is the Cardinal Shiner simply a recently new classification
anyway. I ask this since to distinct populations (as I know you are
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.
