The red-striped shiner or Lahontan redside (Richardsonius egregius) is a cyprinid fish of the Great Basin in eastern California and western Nevada. The range of these redsides is defined by the old Lake Lahontan basin. Rivers include the Truckee River, Carson River, etc. They are also found in upper parts of the Feather River, probably as accidental introductions via the bait bucket. They are abundant across their range, and successful colonizers around its edges, so they are not considered threatened in any way. A variety of common names make reference to the breeding colors, including redside minnow, red-striped shiner, Lahontan redshiner, etc. Order: Cypriniformes, Family: Cyprinidae.
