Ash Meadows poolfish

The common name of the genus Empetrichthys has since been changed from killifish to poolfish .

The Ash Meadows poolfish lives in the benthopelagic, non-migratory, freshwater environment.

The Ash Meadows poolfish lived in the same habitat as the Amargosa pupfish (Cyprinodon nevadensis), however they went extinct during the 1940’s, presumably after habitat modification. More
