Unique Characters: Large scales, those on front side deeper than wide. When viewed from above, three dark stripes on upper side meet those from other side behind dorsal fin to form large Vs. In North Carolina it is known primarily from the Nolichucky basin with a few records from French Broad, Pigeon, and Hiwassee basins.
There are no similar-looking Luxilus in these Tennessee River drainage basins.
