Floyds Fork supports an
abundant, highly diversified mussel fauna. The overall number of species and large
number of individuals of each species of mussels indicates a stream that has a high water
quality and a bivalve population that is both healthy and stable. Below is a list of the
different types of mussels observed in the Floyds Fork area. There are no pictures
of the mussels found in Floyds Fork due to the difficulty involved in photographing fauna
so small and dispersed.
Lampsilis teres luteola
Asian Clam (Corbicula manilensis)
Clubshell (Pleurobema clava)
Crayfish (Orconectes sp.)
Snails (Goniobasis sp.)
