Been going through pics trying to finish collection sheets for Bob per his request of us attendees. Doing fairly well (don't laugh, Blaylock) but am puzzled on these. Whatcha think?

Weed Shiner (Notropis texanus)? This fish is from Maple Slough Ditch, in Mississippi County, down in the Bootheel. This was not an official convention spot.

From Charrette Creek, (Warren County) which was an official convention stream though we hit it much closer to the Missouri River than the designated spot. Bigeye Shiner (Notropis boops)?

The first one is a Lythrurus of some variety.  The Pimephales is a Pimephales but no idea which one.  I assume you posted the last one for Josh's amusement.

Thanks, Dustin. That last one is actually a decent id picture if you enlarge it. Will double check if anything else in those families is in range for where I got 'em.

3rd (boops?) i'd guess a Luxilus (bleeding, cardinal, striped?)  and 4th looks like a "true" Notropis - maybe weed.  But really I dunno squat about MO species.

Striped for the Luxilius.  I would guess the last one is bigeye (boops).

Hey all, finally got my stuff to Bob and asked him about these same fishes. His responses:

First two pictures (same fish) Eastern Redfin Shiner, Lythrurus umbratilis cyanocephalus, probably female.

Third pic I forgot to send him.

Fourth fish is a Bigeye Shiner, Notropis boops.

Photo five is Pimphales notatus.

Last fish is Notropis nubilus, Ozark Minnow.

Sooooo, if you look at the fish in each individual photo as relating to my guesses, I did ok; 3 right, 2 wrong, 1 forgot to send the photo. Pretty good by my standards! :)
