Tadpole Madtom

Tadpole Madtom

Noturus gyrinus

Tadpole Madtom lives in lowland lakes, bays of Lake Ontario and the lower reaches of streams with dense weed beds. The 17 watersheds where it is native include all those except Allegheny. There are few records from the Adirondacks and apparent range losses from Chemung, Newark Bay and western Long Island watersheds.
