Range Description

This species is only known from a few headwater tributaries of the Hiwassee River in Towns County, Georgia, and Clay County, North Carolina, USA (Hobbs 1981, Cooper 2006). Ten years of intensive searching has found a total of 11 locations. Hobbs (1981) described the species from the headwaters of the Hiwassee River in Towns County, Georgia, and Clay County, North Carolina. The North Carolina and Georgia populations are separated from one another by Chatuge Lake. LeGrand et al. (2006) cite streams in the Hiwassee drainage in Cherokee and Clay Counties, in far western North Carolina. Cooper (2006) also found this species in the Hiwassee basin in North Carolina and sites five localities in Towns County, Georgia, and two in Clay County, North Carolina.
