As stated in the introduction:

This publication presents the current common and scientific names
recommended by Nelson et al. (2003), along with past synonyms,
misattributions, and misspellings, in an attempt to expedite
recognition of species reported in the literature. It follows the
example of Cross (1967) and includes observations made by that author
regarding the validity of past species identifications. It has been
updated to include published scientific literature cited by Cross and
Collins (1995) and recent taxonomic revisions. Unpublished works
that reference poorly studied geographic areas are also included.
Referenced publications not dealing directly with the "natural
history" of fish assemblages from Kansas were omitted (i.e., those
dealing with single species propagation or management). Species

Collins (1995), as noted in Potts, Collins, and Shaw (1999), have
been added to the listing. A bibliography of referenced publications
is included.
