DescriptionThe Ouachita madtom, Noturus lachneri, is a small, uniformly-colored catfish endemic to the upper Saline and Ouachita river drainages in central Arkansas (Robison and Buchanan, 1988), where it is often found in shallow pools associated with clear, high gradient, rock-bottomed streams (Robison and Harp, 1985). Distribution, habitat, diet, and conservation status of N. lachneri. were examined by Robison and Harp (1985). However, information on parasites of this endemic species has not been reported. Herein, we report on species richness and mean abundance of hehninth parasites of N. lachneri.
