A new species and a new subspecies of Epioblasma are described from the Tennessee River drainage, USA. Epioblasma ahlstedti (Duck River Dartersnapper) currently is restricted to the Duck River in west-central Tennessee (TN). However, museum collections indicate that the species likely occurred in the Buffalo River, TN, a tributary to the Duck River, and in the Tennessee River at Muscle Shoals, Alabama (AL), and lower Shoal Creek, AL.
