Remarks: Typhlichthys eigenmanni Charlton , 1933, is treated as a subjective synonym of Typhlichthys subterraneus Girard ZBK , 1859, the Southern Cavefish, the name applied to blind amblyopsids in southeastern Missouri (see Mayden & Cross, 1983). Charlton’s (1933) figure 1 is identified as Typhlichthys eigenmanni in the text, but as Troglichthys rosae in the figure caption. See Poly & Proudlove (2004:4) for additional synonyms.
