These North American natives are commonly called Pumpkinseeds because of the black flap at the edge of their gills.Lepomis gibbosus is included in the common sunfish family (Centrarchidae). They can grow quite large for a smallish fish (i.e. over 9″) but most that I’ve seen are from 4-6″. They’re the most colorful fish that is found in a warm water lake or pond. Bass and crappie are some of their fishy relatives.
