Abstract

A new cyprinid fish, Garra waensis, is described from the Wa River, a tributary of the Nan River of the Chao Phraya River
system in northern Thailand. The species is distinguishable from its congeners by the combination of the following characters:
the absence of barbels; 7 branched dorsal fin rays; 31–37 lateral-line scales; 10–12 circumpeduncular scales; a
small and broad head (head length [HL] 22.7–26.1% in standard length, head depth 56.1–64.9% HL, head width 74.0–85.0
% HL); a weakly developed proboscis in front of nostrils; the presence of reddish-orange spots (white or dull yellowish
white in preserved specimens) on the side of the body; and a dark mid-lateral stripe running from the upper edge of the
gill opening to the caudal peduncle and expanding into a large anteriorly-pointed triangular blotch at the end of the body
(in preserved condition). A vomero-palatine organ of the species is also described in detail for the first time for Asian species
of Garra. The genus Placocheilus is treated as a junior synonym of Garra.

 

A copy would be great, please.
