I guess that was what I was implying. Prior to it's designation as a species what was species was it lumped with? F. notti? F. dispar? They are so common here yet they are never included in any of the "official" checklists. Going back to a thread a year ago or so, Even the "official" Texas checklist doesn't include F. blairae. I should be able to lobby for that change at the Texas Native Fish Weekend when Gary Garret speaks. He's the keeper of the list!
