It is a medium-sized minnow which inhabits ponds and sluggish freshwater streams in North America from latitude; 30°N. to 50°N. In the south its range is restricted to the area east of the Appalachian Mountains. The northern and western part of the range extends to Wyoming and south to the drainages of the Arkansas and upper Ohio Rivers.
