Yes, there's the least madtom, Noturus hildebrandi. Closest known relative to
the pygmy and only a little larger. They're relatively abundant in some
streams in west Tennessee. I'm headed that way today! We're going to be
working in the Hatchie river. This is the only place I know that you can
collect six madtom species at one site!

I'm wanting to try spawning the least madtom. If this works out we might have
baby ones next summer. We could probably give some of these away since
they're not listed. Anyone need any brindled madtoms? We have quite a few
little ones right now!
