Appendix A. Foreign cyprinids established or reported from the United States.

       Nonindigenous foreign cyprinids introduced to inland waters are listed by state. The matrix is largely based on Fuller and others (1999) although several records have been added or modified due to new information.

       Key to symbols:

    E - Established, one or more breeding populations known to exist.

    E? - reported from state, possibly established, existence of a breeding population not confirmed.

    X  Only known established population(s) eradicated or extirpated.

    X? - previously known to be established, recent information indicates possible extirpation.

    R - reported from one or more localities, no evidence of establishment.

    R? - reported, but record or records not fully confirmed (that is, some doubt remains concerning identification). asterisk (*) - indicates that we have located (or found published reference to) voucher specimen(s) that support one or more of a states records. In most cases, the voucher has been deposited and catalogued in a recognized ichthyological collection; however, not all specimens have been examined to verify identification.
    Note: For states where a species is listed as established, possibly established, or extirpated, other records may indicate that the species has been reported from one or more sites within the same state.
