For some time the writers have been very much interested in a study of the fishes of Iowa. On investigating the matter of fish lists of the state, it was found that they were very scattered and that no attempt had been made in the last thirty-five years to make them more compact. The nomenclature, in the meantime, had become quite confused and somewhat antiquated. The need for work on synonomy was very much in evidence also.
