You have to understand... "Illinois", sadly, is "west" for the 'ol Farmer
;) While it may seem I have a broad world view, any of it has been
accumulated second hand. But... I have a passport now, a whole new career
path, and nothing holding me in Toledo. Gonna go check out the fishes of
Costa Rica here in two weeks, which will be my first non-Canadian out of
country experience. May this set the tone for the years to come. Because,
you know...

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

Actually, Hybognathus occurs all over the place from the Rio Grande
across the Great plains, across the northern US states and down the east
coast. Macrhybopsis is more in the south from around Alabama to New
Mexico, but also occurs throughout the central region of the Mississippi
Valley and it's major tributaries.
