"; however, its diploid number of 50 chromosomes differs from the proposed ancestral "
" karyotype of 54–56 chromosomes. However, this relationship has not been supported by preliminary mitochondrial DNA sequence data. Despite similarity to other cave-dwelling species of Ictaluridae, they are not closely related.

baileyi") is a species of catfish. Little information exists about the smoky madtom, along with other members of the "
" species, due to the high turbidity in which they spawn, preventing observation, as well as their nocturnal behaviors.

"Ameiurus" is recognized as monophyletic, meaning it forms a natural group. It is mostly closely related to the clade formed by "
", "Prietella", "Satan", and "Pylodictis" genera.
Though the family includes three genera of blind, subterranean, and troglobitic catfishes, "Trogloglanis", "Satan", and "Prietella", none of these three genera is closely related. Instead, "Satan" is closely related to "Pylodictis", "Prietella" to "
", and "Trogloglanis" possibly to "Ictalurus", although it may not be closely related to any of the other ictalurids. "Ameiurus" is sister to a clade formed by "Satan", "Pylodictis", "
", and "Prietella".
The pygmy madtom ("
stanauli") is a species of fish in the Ictaluridae family endemic to the United States, in only two known regions of Tennessee. Madtoms are the smallest members of the catfish family. Members of the genus "
" can be distinguished by their small size, unusually long adipose fin, and rounded caudal fin. Most specimens have been collected over shallow, fine gravel shoals with moderate to swift flow, usually near the stream bank.
exilis, also called the slender madtom, is a species of the Ictaluridae family of catfish. The Ictaluridae family includes bullheads, madtoms, channel catfish, and blue catfish. "
exilis" is found in the central portion of the Mississippi River basin, but is most abundant in Ozarkian streams. Slender madtoms occur west of the Mississippi River in the Ozarks of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri north to southern Wisconsin and Minnesota. It also occurs east of the Mississippi River in the uplands of Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky in the Tennessee, Cumberland, and Green drainages. Nelson first described "
exilis" in 1876. The slender madtom is moderately large with a terminal to sub terminal mouth, flat head, small eyes, and black marginal bands on the median fins. Most slender madtoms are less than . "
flavus" and "
nocturnus" are rather similar in shape and coloration to "Norturus exilis". Slender madtoms inhabit small to medium sized streams, in riffle and flowing pool habitats with coarse gravel to slab rock substrates. The presence of a shelter object, such as a large rock, seems to be important in habitat selection.
