FEATURED SPECIES: Rio Grande Chub (Gila pandora)

 Illustration by Joseph R. Tomelleri


The only member of this minnow genus known from Texas, the Río Grande Chub, Gila pandora (Cope, 1872), lives in about a dozen sites in Río Grande tributaries of New México, and Colorado, and in one highly isolated, one mile-long section of a small stream in the Davis Mountains of Texas. This photographed specimen is from that tiny, precariously persisting, and very much endangered, population.
