Does anyone know what subgenus the Okaloosa Darter (Etheostoma okaloosae)
belongs in? I've been trying to get a handle on the taxonomy of the darters
and I ran across this species on Page and Burr's Freshwater Fishes. By the
way the fish are grouped in the book it appears to be between the subgenus's
of Belophlox and Ozarka. Does anyone know where it belongs?
