Brown darter

The Brown darter lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater environment.

relatively recently when brown darters began to appear in areas of Okaloosa darter distribution. Whether this invasion by the brown darter has been natural, or human caused, is unknown (01,02,03,04). Apparently, in streams where the two species occur together, E. edwini is replacing E. okaloosae (02). More
