New Records of Fishes Within Florida Caves
Buford C. Pruitt, Jr.


One hundred and thirty-eight subaerial and subaquatic Florida caves have been investigated over a 20-year period for fish faunas. A total of 29 fishes has been found in caves, of which 17 have been found in the cave dark zone and 12 in entrance twilight areas. Only six of these have been reported previously from Florida's cave habitats. None are troglobites or troglophiles, five are trogloxenes and the remainder are accidentials.
