New river shiner seems pretty possible just looking at photos. Looks like it was named in 1994. What was it lumped into before that?
It is about as non distinct as a sand shiner, looking at confirmed photos. Anyone know?

Fishes of Virginia says the New River shiner was described by Cope in 1868. 

Mimic shiner and sandbar shiner are the ones it looks most like to me (in NC).

I wont hazard a guess on the Nocomis - could be either.

Thanks for the help fellas, so are we pretty confident about the Shiner being a New River?
