zonata, Elassoma Jordan [D. S.] 1877:50, Pl. 45 (fig. 73) [Bulletin of the United States National Museum [v. 1] No. 10; ref. 2374] Little Red River, White County, Arkansas, U.S.A. Lectotype: USNM 20496. Paralectotypes: USNM uncat. (1) [Brazos R., Texas]. Type catalog: Gilbert 1998:255 [ref. 23395]. Lectotype designated by Gilbert 2004:3 [ref. 27602]. See also Boschung 1992:111 [ref. 23239]. Species should be zonatum. Mention of "type" in Jordan 1877:Pl. 45 [ref. 2374] not regarded by us as establishing a lectotype. Gilbert 1998:255 [ref. 23395] assumed that Jordan & Evermann restricted the type locality, but that can only be done through lectotype designation. •Valid as Elassoma zonatum Jordan 1877 -- (Lee et al. 1980:586 [ref. 22416], Robison & Buchanan 1988:392 [ref. 23393], Page & Burr 1991:256 [ref. 18983], Boschung 1992:111 [ref. 23239], Etnier & Starnes 1993:396 [ref. 22809], Mayden 1993:1 [ref. 21162], Warren et al. 1994:133 [ref. 25557], Knight & Hastings 1994:150 [ref. 25560], Mettee et al. 1996:513 [ref. 25836], Gilbert 1998:255 [ref. 23395], Jones & Quattro 1999:470 [ref. 23804], Quattro et al. 2001:514 [ref. 25237], Ross et al. 2001:440 [ref. 25978], Gilbert 2004:3 [ref. 27602], Echelle & Echelle 2002:80 [ref. 27834], Nelson et al. 2004:151 [ref. 27807], Miller & Robison 2004:292 [ref. 27931], Boschung & Mayden 2004:617 [ref. 27995], Scharpf 2009:3 [ref. 30400], Page & Burr 2011:604 [ref. 31215], Page et al. 2013:155 [ref. 32708], Robins et al. 2018:308 [ref. 35886]).
