I believe Kyle Piller of Southeastern Louisiana University did his
dissertation at Tulane on the E. blennioides complex, coming to the
conclusion that the 2 subspecies E. B. newmani and E. B. pholidotum
deserved elevation to species level. Don't know that anything was ever
published though.

To which I replied "Well the fish in the Allegheny look like the fish in
Duck and the fish in the Tennessee mainstem look like their own thing,
the fish in the Holston and Clinch look like fish from the Scioto, which
sorta resemble the fish in the Lake Erie tribs, but without that stunning
red band in the dorsal, and I've seen pictures of fish from the Ozarks that
look like fish in Michigan, but that might just be me." lol
