Satinfin is the only native Cyprinella in the Dan River according to Menhinick's book.  But it's certainly possible spotfins (from New River) could have been introduced in the Dan.  The NC-DWR data shows lutrensis as the only exotic Cyprinella reported there.  Satinfin and Spotfin are not sympatric in NC so I've never had need to compare them side-by-side.

Are those satinfin or spotfin up there Gerald?  I was thinking they were spotfin.  I agree that 11 looks like a small redlip.

Hey Dustin if it is #14 you are referring to, I would like to know what myself what that is if it's not a Satinfin. The lateral line is slightly different, (well to me at least) and you can see the obvious markings on the dorsal fin.

I trust Gerald in regards to the drainage species so that fish must be a satinfin.
