New records of the Mountain Mullet, Dajaus monticola (Bancroft, 1834), and an overview of historical records in Texas Academic Article uri icon


  • Dajaus monticola (Bancroft, 1834) is an amphidromous species of mugilid known from South and Central America and the islands of the Caribbean but is rarely collected in Gulf coast states of the United States. Two new records of D. monticola collected from the Gulf of Mexico (Brazoria Co.) and the Brazos River (Washington Co.) are reported from Texas. The rare occurrence of D. monticola in Texas is discussed and diagnostic characters used to distinguish this species from other mugilids found in Texas are reevaluated.
