Bluntnose darter

The Bluntnose darter lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater environment.

The bluntnose darter is an endangered species in Iowa (571 IAC 77.2(1) (2004)). This species was so rare that Harlan et al. (1987) suggested that it may be extirpated from the state with the exception of a possible remnant population in the Mississippi River. More

Bluntnose Darters occur in only a few places in the Spring and Neosho River basins, always in small numbers. More

CHARACTERISTICS: The bluntnose darter is a slender species with a blunt snout. Live individuals are often translucent. The body color is generally light yellow or olive with brown or black markings. More
