P. gelius has recently been redescribed and there are now three similar-looking valid species.

Among our profile images these would appear to represent new species P. aurea:

Puntius-gelius-ZH.jpgImage Enlarger
Puntius-gelius-Beta.jpgImage Enlarger

These should be P. gelius:

Puntius-canius.jpgImage Enlarger
Puntius-gelius-RC.jpgImage Enlarger
Puntius-cf-gelius-Beta-2.jpgImage Enlarger
Puntius-cf-gelius-Beta.jpgImage Enlarger

...and I think these are P. canius but would appreciate a second opinion:

All the pics of Aurea seem correct ,no colour in the ventral fins being the best way to identify them !

The Gelius look right ! 

just a bit curious about the Canius ,the 1st and 3rd pic look right ! the 2nd pic looks a little like Gelius ?

 

I picked up a nice group of Aurea recently ,they were being sold as Gelius :) ,if I'm honest Aurea is the fish I had always thought to be the true Gelius , until I read  Marc knight's recent paper !

That's exactly what Marc Knight said Andy, guess that second fish is gelius! :)

Will sort the profiles out over the next day or two.
