Lepidocephalichthys micropogon BLYTH, 1860

January 16th, 2013 — 11:07am

According to Kottelat (2012) L. manipurensis Arunkumar, 2000, which was described from Moreh, Manipur state, northeastern India, close to the border with Myanmar, is a syonym of L. micropogon.

Havird and Page (2010) differentiate the two based on caudal-fin patterning, predorsal length and ver…

January 15th, 2013 — 4:58pm

Endemic to Sri Lanka with type locality ‘shaded pools of mountain streams at Akuressa, Southern Province, Sri Lanka, elevation 500 meters’.

It’s known from at least five localities, all of which are located in restricted to Sri Lanka’s ‘wet zone’ in the southwest of the island, with records exis…

Canthophrys gongota (HAMILTON, 1822)

Moose-faced Loach

March 13th, 2012 — 1:26pm

Mostly known from slow-moving, relatively shallow tributaries and minor rivers with substrates of mud, sand or gravel. Aquatic plants are only occasionally present but riparian vegetation apparently grows thickly at some localities.

In the Schutunga River, part of the Mansai River drinage which is itself a tributary of the Brahmaputra in West Bengal state, In…

Microcobitis misgurnoides (RENDAHL, 1944)

March 13th, 2012 — 1:26pm

This species was initially described as a member of Cobitis and remained as such for over 60 years until being redescribed in the new genus Microcobitis by Bohlen and Harant (2011). It can be separated from Cobitis species by a number of char…

Paramisgurnus dabryanus DABRY DE THIERSANT, 1872

March 13th, 2012 — 1:26pm

It’s actually sold in the aquarium hobby on a regular basis but almost always labelled as or mixed in with Misgurnus anguillicaudatus and is thus poorly documented.

Although quite simi…

Pangio sp. 'PAN03'

March 13th, 2012 — 1:25pm

Pangio species are often generically referred to as ‘kuhli’ or ‘coolie’ loaches in the aquarium hobby, the latter a variation of the former which was itself derived from the surname of German naturalist Heinrich Kuhl (1797-1821). Ichthyo…

Pangio sp. 'PAN04'

Panda Loach

March 13th, 2012 — 1:25pm

This unidentified species has been traded since the mid-00s and appears to be a member of the P. khuliioblonga species group as per Bohlen et al. (2011).

There are two similar-looking forms; one has a darker body, dark pigmentation in the pectoral fins and barbels and a blue sheen on the head, while the…

Pangio sp. 'PAN02'

March 13th, 2012 — 1:25pm

The fish in our images don’t correspond to any of the described members of the genus but can be assigned to the P. oblonga species group with a degree of certainty. It’s apparently exported as a contaminant among shipments of a uniformly brown-coloured fish with unpublished genetic analyses suggesting the two might be variants of the same species (J. Bohlen, pers. comm.).

Among congeners it may be related to P. alcoides Kottela…
