Title Cathedral cave fishes
Date 2000
Description Table XLI provides the numbers of identified fish specimens by element from Stratum II at Cathedral Cave. The criteria used to arrive at those identifications are provided in chapter nine. A total of 547 identified fish specimens are represented in this deposit; all of those are sculpin. The mottled sculpin (Cottus bairdi) is represented by three preopercles. Five preopercles were identified as either Bear Lake sculpin (Cottus extensus) or Utah Lake sculpin (C. echinatus). Both C. extensus and C. bairdi are represented in the Homestead Cave fauna as well as from the Hot Springs and Black Rock late Pleistocene deposits of Lake Bonneville (Smith and others, 1968). Since C. echinatus has yet to be securely identified in any Lake Bonneville ichthyofauna, the materials identified as C. extensus/echinatus most likely represent C. extensus.
