The Nonindigenous Occurrences section of the NAS species profiles has a new structure. The section is now dynamically updated from the NAS database to ensure that it contains the most current and accurate information. Occurrences are summarized in Table 1, alphabetically by state, with years of earliest and most recent observations, and the tally and names of drainages where the species was observed. The table contains hyperlinks to collections tables of specimens based on the states, years, and drainages selected. References to specimens that were not obtained through sighting reports and personal communications are found through the hyperlink in the Table 1 caption or through the individual specimens linked in the collections tables.

Moxostoma rupiscartes Jordan and Jenkins in Jordan, 1889

Common name: Striped Jumprock

Taxonomy: available through www.itis.govITIS logo

Identification: Menhinick (1991); Page and Burr (1991). The genus Moxostoma was revised by Smith (1992), and Scartomyzon, a subgenus of Moxostoma, was elevated to genus. However, Harris et al. (2002) suggest that Scartomyzon is not a distinct lineage and its species are within the Moxostoma lineage (Nelson et. al, 2004). 

Size: 28 cm.

Native Range: Atlantic Slope from Santee River drainage, North Carolina, to Altamaha River drainage, Georgia; Gulf Slope in upper Chattahoochee River drainage, Georgia. Recently discovered in and possibly introduced to the extreme upper Pee Dee River drainage, North Carolina (Page and Burr 1991).

Means of Introduction: Unknown.

Status: Established in North Carolina.

Impact of Introduction: The impacts of this species are currently unknown, as no studies have been done to determine how it has affected ecosystems in the invaded range. The absence of data does not equate to lack of effects. It does, however, mean that research is required to evaluate effects before conclusions can be made.

Remarks: None.
