Spotted Darter

Spotted Darter

Etheostoma maculatum

Spotted Darter resides in medium-sized streams with clean gravel and is found in only French Creek of the Allegheny watershed. Its range is severely restricted but secure although changing land-use practices in the basin could affect in-stream habitat, distribution and abundance of this species in the future. It is classified as Threatened.
