There was a snubnose from the general middle Tennessee area described as
Eth. atripinne in a paper years ago by Blanchard, I think, and now if I
remember correctly considered as a local population of simoterum. But I'm
sure other species can be described out of all of these tributary river
systems, depending on your criteria for where relatively isolated
populations become legit species.

Hopefully we'll get a look-in-the Shelbyville fish on March 11.
