In New York, eastern sand darters can be found in the St. Lawrence River and Lake Champlain drainages, Raquette River, and in shallow waters of Lake Erie.

References. Fundulus is a genus of ray-finned fishes in the superfamily Funduloidea, family Fundulidae (of which it is the type genus). It belongs to the order of toothcarps (Cyprinodontiformes), and therein the large suborder Cyprinodontoidei. Most of its closest living relatives are egg-laying, with the notable exception Class: Actinopterygii.
