I guess Notropis stramineus is referred to as Notropis ludibundus now, at
least by some folks. Just thought I'd pass that detail along. Also,
Notropis volucellus is pretty similar to stramineus too.

Taxonomic Comments: Because the name NOTROPIS STRAMINEUS is a junior
Mayden and Gilbert (1989) proposed that the specific name STRAMINEUS
should be replaced by the name LUDIBUNDUS. This change was adopted by Page
and Burr (1991). However, the name LUNDIBUNDUS has been unused since its
original proposal. A petition has been submitted to the ICZN to conserve
the familiar name STRAMINEUS. Pending the ICZN decision, the 1991 AFS
checklist (Robins et al. 1991) retained the name as N. STRAMINEUS.
Published opinion supports conservation of the specific name STAMINEUS
(Bull. Zool. Nomen. 57:111-112).
