The distribution of the taillight shiner, Notropis maculatus (Hay), within Arkansas is discussed based on personal collections, literature citations and a search of museum records. N. maculatus appears to be a typical Coastal Plain physiographic province inhabitant occurring below the Fall Line, and it nears its western and northern range limits west of the Mississippi River in Arkansas. Data are provided on preferred habitat, and suggestions are provided as to the current status of the taillight shiner within Arkansas.
