    Taxon: Erimyzon sucetta
    Determiner: Agent object
    Staff Notes:
    As per e-mail from Andrew Williston and Karsten Hartel (received Feb18,2010) - \"MCZ 2266 is a Syntype of Moxostoma kennerlii. An image is available on the MCZ webpage; our quick examination suggests this is Erimyzon, as is noted in Jordan and Evermann’s Fishes of North and Middle America, and subsequent publications including Eschmeyer’s online type catalog. This may solve your questions about the identification of this lot; presumably the type locality “Victoria, Texas” is correct.\"; I (AEC) just looked at this photo which certainly looks to be an Erimyzon; specimen is faded and frayed; was able to get a fairly accurate lateral scale count of 36-39 (prob37-38) and large eye (goes into snout slightly more than one) which according to Hubbs key is Erimyzon succeta
    Specimen examined and identified.
    Entire length is determined to be \"near\".
