Stippled darter

The Stippled darter lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater environment.

The Stippled Darter lives in brooks near sources of springs. It prefers small, clear pools or recesses beneath cut-banks where it conceals itself near large stones, in hanging roots, or fallen leaves. More

Stippled darter: Breeding males of this species feature the same mix of bright orange and blue-green colors found in orangethroat and rainbow darters. Stippled darters differ in that they don’t have as much striping as rainbows and orangethroats. More
