Global Range: (5000-20,000 square km (about 2000-8000 square miles)) This sucker is native to headwater streams of the Little Colorado River in east-central Arizona and west-central New Mexico (Propst et al. 2001), at elevations of 2,000-6,760 feet (610-2060 meters) (Arizona Game and Fish Department 2002). Currently the subspecies occurs in low numbers in several creeks in the Kinlichee Creek and Canyon de Chelly areas in Arizona and is restricted to three isolated populations in the upper Rio Nutria drainage in the Zuni River watershed in west-central New Mexico; the Kinlichee Creek, Canyon de Chelly, and Rio Nutria areas are completely isolated and separate from one another (see USFWS 2013).
