INTRODUCTION My Aims One of my aims is to take a retrospective and prospective view that will help colleagues identify areas of cavefish research that need increased attention.
And the one troglophile species, Forbesichthys agassizi, is a possible model for the what most researchers agree is the more usual transition from epigean to hypogean life.
Diplurans are common in caves throughout the In terior PlateauAppalachians and Ozark Highlands of eastern North America where they are most often observed on damp substrates near a water source, such as along mud banks of cave streams.

But Wilkens 2007 documents three different kinds of Mendelian pigment genes that have apparently ceased Biology of Subterranean Fishes function in some Astyanax cavefish populations. Journal of Herpetology 19: 304-306. Eyed surface fish in the dark show no aggression but blind cavefish do show some aggression. "A new genus and species of blind sleeper Teleostei: Eleotridae from Oaxaca, Mexico: First obligate cave gobiiform in the Western Hemisphere". Described by as this species has subsequently been studied in detail by several biologists see below.
