Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1894 edition. Excerpt: ...195 Gobiomorus dormitator.....................................-....... X..

New species are indicated by the word type in connection with its specific name. Locality referenws have usually been given in the exact words of the original authority; when the exact words have not been used, the change made has not been such as to change the sense in the least. The types of most of these species(such as are described from that region) are in the U. S. National Museum. These have all been examined by us, and the species recognized in this paper are such as appear to us to be valid after having not only studied all the types available, but practically all the collections from that region now in the National Museum. A number of Girard's types can not now be found, and our identification of some of those species may be erroneous. With regard to its fresh-water fishes, Texas is chiefly remarkable for the abundance of species in its lowland streams.
