Common Darter - with patience and experience its possible to get both species perching on your hand. (note the abdomen shape is almost even width on striolatum. the red tone can be very strong on some individuals, though never like the blood red of the Ruddy darter)
Comma - this emerged whilst picing the darters- the vivid orange is always a welcome splash of colour on any day.
