The penultimate one looks like a Barilius of some sort. That's as far as I get Confused

Great pics Nik.

The only ones I can guess at off the top of my head are pic 7 (Acanthocobitis botia) and the second last pic (Barilius barila maybe?).

Can check out the Glyptothorax and Schistura if you've locality details. Is it Ganges drainage?

Cake or death?

Hi Matt,

 

Yes the Pic 7 is A. botia. The river from where these were collected does drain in to Yamuna river which ultimately drains into Ganges in Allahabad in UP. I went looking for Schistura rupecula and one of these fish is the real deal from the type locality. Would love if you can get me ID's on the rest. 

Regards

Nikhil

Heh. :) Doubt I can help then. Maybe @The.Dark.One can assist?

So which is the fish from the S. rupecola type locality?

Cake or death?

Hi Matt,

 

I think that came out wrong. All these fish are from the type locality and around it. It has been confirmed that one is the S. rupecula but I don't know which one right now. There is another fish from a different locality but no clear pics. Let me look for that and post it too.

 

Regards

Nik
