<< All three are native to Michigan- Fundulus diaphanus is represented by the
western F. d. "menona" form, Fundulus notatus just barely gets into the SE
part of the state, and Lepomis cyanellus is widespread.

Check out the collections of the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology,
available online. You can search for fish locality information data very
easily. The UMMZ is one of the largest collections in the US. >>

Just what I needed to know, right down to the subspecies! I rather suspected
that it was possible that Fundulus notatus existed in the extreme SE of MI,
because I seemed to recall seeing their range map displaying their range as
being in Illinois and Indiana right up to MI borders in a book somewhere. I'm
definitely checking out U of M Museum's online collections, so I can learn
more exact information about the distribution of MI fishes. Thanks for the
helpful tips and info!
