Abstract
Badis britzi, the first species of the genus endemic to southern India, is described from the Nagodi tributary of the westflowing
Sharavati River in Karnataka. It is distinguished from congeners by a combination of characters including a slender
body, 21–24 pored lateral-line scales and a striking colour pattern consisting of 11 bars and a mosaic of black and red
pigmentation on the side of the body including the end of caudal peduncle, and the absence of cleithral, opercular, or caudal-
peduncle blotches, or an ocellus on the caudal-fin base. Badis triocellus Khynriam & Sen is considered a junior synonym
of B. singenensis Geetakumari & Kadu.

Key words: freshwater fish, Karnataka, Perciformes, Sharavati
