One of Oklahoma’s rarest fish species (Robison 1992; Miller and Robison 2004), the Longnose Darter, Percina nasuta (Bailey 1941), is historically known to have occurred in only two river systems in Oklahoma: Lee Creek and the Poteau River (Cross and Moore 1952; Lindsey et al. 1983; Wagner et al. 1985) (Figure 1). In Oklahoma, Longnose Darters are designated as
a state-endangered species and are considered of conservation concern throughout their range (Jelks et al. 2008; ODWC 2016).
