Gunnar

Ictiobus cyprinellas
6/9/18
Notes: My 100th lifer (not counting a species or two of cutthroat trout I don't have photos of).
Ictiobus bubalus
6/14/13
Notes: Originally added to my list as a smallmouth buffalo, then I switched it to black buffalo (based on info from an experienced biologist who considers it to be "mostly" black buffalo, as an intergrade that has a smallmouth in its recent ancestry). Now I'm moving it back to smallmouth since it's not pure black. I'll catch a pure black as soon as I can, and a pure smallmouth, and then I'll relegate this one to the hybrids section.
