Gad, allow me to correct the below species description; you won't find
Fundulus rubrifrons on the Fort Morgan peninsula, but you _will_ find
Fundulus cingulatus. Rubrifrons is much to the east, in the eastern half of
Florida for the most part. And cingulatus is a.k.a. auroguttatus due to an
earlier taxonomic error which I won't go into here...
