Notes

We saw seven overall in this muddy seep by kicking, although Bethany recorded six specimens, and I am only recording the seventh and final specimen, which showed evidence of intraspecific competition in the form of bite marks. This is the species that is currently known as "Siren minima" and is restricted to a few seepage areas in the W. FL panhandle.
