Lampsilis altilis , n, 19
Sorry, complete description will follow,
meanwhile please leave some useful comments to be included.
Fine-lined Pocketbook (Lampsilis
altilis), is an Endangered freshwater mussel endemic to the United
States. The species is found at sites in five river drainages in Alabama
and appears to be mostly restricted to tributary creeks after being
eliminated from most of the river habitat throughout its range. Habitat
modification, sedimentation, and degradation of water quality have
resulted in past population declines and are still considered the
main threats to the species. Photo © Wendell R. Haag.
