Global Range: (20,000-200,000 square km (about 8000-80,000 square miles)) This species is endemic to the Apalachicola River drainage (exclusive of Chipola River system), Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, USA (Boschung and Mayden 2004, Page and Burr 2011), including the upper and middle Chattahoochee and middle Flint rivers, lowermost parts of their tributaries, and upper Apalachicola River. The species formerly was present at shoals now inundated by fifteen large impoundments. A record from the Escambia River is not considered valid (Mayden 1989).

Habitat Type: Freshwater

Comments: Habitat includes large creeks and alluvial rivers with open, sand- or rock-bottomed channels with flowing water and little or no aquatic vegetation (Lee et al. 1980, Boschung and Mayden 2004, Page and Burr 2011). Eggs are laid in crevices.

Migration

Non-Migrant: No. All populations of this species make significant seasonal migrations.

Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make local extended movements (generally less than 200 km) at particular times of the year (e.g., to breeding or wintering grounds, to hibernation sites).

Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make annual migrations of over 200 km.

Population Biology

Number of Occurrences

Note: For many non-migratory species, occurrences are roughly equivalent to populations.

Estimated Number of Occurrences: 6 - 20

Comments: This species is represented by at least several distinct occurrences (subpopulations) in Georgia and additional occurrences in Alabama and Florida.

Life History and Behavior

Reproduction

Spawns probably late April-August (with June peak) in Uchee Creek, Alabama; males maintain territories near spawning crevices; multiple females may lay in a single site (Wallace and Ramsey 1981).

NatureServe Conservation Status

Rounded Global Status Rank: G2 - Imperiled

Reasons: Endemic to the Apalachicola River drainage in Florida, Alabama, and Georgia; small number of occurrences; significant reduction of habitat has occurred, and existing occurrences could be threatened in the future by further habitat alteration.

Threats

Degree of Threat: B : Moderately threatened throughout its range, communities provide natural resources that when exploited alter the composition and structure of the community over the long-term, but are apparently recoverable

Comments: Habitat in lower Chattahoochee has been reduced by impoundments, although the species apparently can adapt to some degree to reservoir conditions (Mettee et al. 1996). Threats also include pollution and siltation.

Global Protection: Unknown whether any occurrences are appropriately protected and managed

Comments: No Managed Area adequately protects the riverine habitat occupied by this species, although some in Florida (see ESR) protect segments of shoreline. However, water quality is subject to external influences.

Needs: Ecological integrity of Apalachicola River drainage needs to be maintained by limiting habitat alteration and pollution.
