The Southern redbelly dace (Phoxinus erythrogaster), is a North American species of temperate freshwater fish belonging to the Phoxinus genus of the cyprinidae family. The natural geographic range extends from Western New York to Minnesota, and south to Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Alabama. This fish prefers flowing pools of creeks and streams.
The extremely similar Northern redbelly dace can be distinguished by a rounder, blunter head and a more upturned mouth, as well as by differences in spawning behavior.
The Southern redbelly dace reaches a maximum length of about 9 cm.
