Range Description

Headwaters of the Little Tennessee River and some tributaries to the Pigeon River, eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina (Etnier and Starnes 1993, Boschung and Mayden 2004, Page and Burr 2011). Recently, Etheostoma gutselli has been collected at several localities in the Pigeon River in North Carolina and Tennessee below the paper mill in Canton, North Carolina (P. Shute and D. Etnier, 1996, Southeastern Fishes Council report). Prior to this, the species had been known in Tennessee from a single recent specimen from Slick Rock Creek (tributary to Little Tennessee River) (Etnier and Starnes 1993). Etheostoma gutselli also occurs in extreme northeastern Georgia (http://fishesofgeorgia.uga.edu).

Extent of occurrence appears to be between 5,000 and 10,000 square kilometers.
