CONSPECTUS COBITIDUM:
AN INVENTORY OF THE LOACHES OF THE WORLD
(TELEOSTEI: CYPRINIFORMES: COBITOIDEI)
by Maurice Kottelat

Loaches (fishes of the superfamily Cobitoidea) include todate
1043 species in 111 genera in 10 families. They are
found throughout Eurasia. Their greatest diversity is observed
in the hill streams of Southeast Asia. Loaches have
been recorded in some of the most extreme freshwater
habitats, such as caves and desert oases. The fish known
from the highest altitude (5200 m) is a loach.
This overview, based on published and unpublished
observations, provides a list of all species and their synonyms,
and revises their nomenclature. The exact type locality
of several species is clarified.
Some 220 colour figures show 165 species and details
of mouth morphology of 50 species. At least one species
of each genus is figured. About 160 photographs are
published here for the first time.
Available from Raffles Museum of Biodiversity
Research and from the author.

If past issues of the RBZ Supplement are anything to go by, these would run in the USD80 range.

 

I could try to purchase some direct from the museum.  Anyone up for a mass order?

You're probably right about the costs HH, because from Publications Kottelat its 65 Swiss Francs (plus shipping, 10.50 CHF in Europe, 15 CHF outside Europe).

The description of the new genus is on page 137. Ambastaia is already the second genus based on 'unique colour pattern'

It seems Homaloptera is now split to BalitoropsisHomaloptera, Homalopteroides, Homalopterula

 

eg. Balitoropsis zollingeriHomalopteroides smithiHomalopteroides tweediei, Homalopterula ripleyi

 

This paper surely keeps you busy for a long time ;)

Yeah, quite a lot of editing to do!

Randall and Page state that additional work is needed to determine whether BalitoropsisHomaloptera and Homalopterula represent valid genera or not. See here: http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa.....86p346.pdf

New families for Barbucca and Serpenticobitis, too.

Seems like some Ichthylogists are doing science (analyses data, reconstruct phylogenetic relationships etc.) and other Ichthylogists are just naming new taxa or presenting new combinations without giving evidences Wink

Am leaving Homaloptera as is, i.e., Homaloptera and Homalopteroides valid, others as putative subgenera, for now unless anyone disagrees?

The family Gastromyzontidae is also considered valid thus all Beaufortia, Gastromyzon, Pseudogastromyzon, Erromyzon, Formosania,   Hypergastromyzon, etc. are no longer balitorids.

Two Yunnanilus familiar from aquarium trade:

Y. brevis is now Petruichthys brevis and Y. cruciatus is Micronemacheilus cruciatus

 

Again, if i'm reading the paper correctly, some of the old Yunnanilus is now split also to Eonemachilus

Yep, and it seems the rosy loach should be moved to Petruichthys as well?

Just spotted another one. The horse-faced loach is now Acantopsis dialuzona with A. choirorhynchos a junior synonym.
