Yeah, the reason I ask is that the stripe on males is typically wider
and/or toothed, while that on females is typically narrow and
straight-edged. The notatus in central Ohio develop a very marked
dimorphism with the stripe. When in nuptial color, the stripe on the male
may appear as closely placed, short, vertical bars. That on females is a
clean-edged, straight band. Is that what you see on your Big Darby fishes,
