Ok so this is the next loach genus to cover. Who's keeping/has kept what!? /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> The only one I've had any contact with is C. paludica.

Yes Matt, the two from china are possibly undescribed. I don't find a chinese cobitis that match with mine. Compared with C. macrostigma, arenae, granoei, dolichorhynchus, melanoleuca, lutheri, sinensis and rarus. The first come in trade as C. chinensis (not valid and no synonym), the second comes with the chinensis as blind passenger.

Colin are you keeping stone loaches? /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Have had a quick look at this genus and the research is going to take a wee bit of time. Not giving up but may add a few other genera before returning here.
