Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in larger, moderately clear to turbid rivers and the lowermost parts of their major tributaries below the Fall Line in the Mobile Bay basin. These areas have moderate to strong water current and bottom comprising of a combination of gravel, sand and silt. Inhabits sympatrically with Macrhybopsis etnieri (with no evidence of hybridization) over a 40-km section of middle Cahaba River in Fall Line area of Alabama (Ref. 116539).
