    Abstract

    Sisorid catfish genus Glyptothorax Blyth is represented in Pakistan by six species, viz., Glyptothorax sufii Bashir & Mirza, Glyptothorax cavia (Hamilton), Glyptothorax pectinopterus (McClelland), Glyptothorax stocki Mirza & Nijssen, Glyptothorax kashmirensis Hora, Glyptothorax punjabensis Mirza & Kashmiri. These are recorded from different foot hill streams and adjoining plains. After detailed analysis G. naziri is found to be a synonym of G. kashmirensis Hora; G. telchitta sufii Bashir and Mirza has been validated as full species G. sufii. Presently recognized species are easily identifiable on the basis of general body shape, sucker shape, length of barbels, fin structure, number of serrations on dorsal and pectoral spines and number of gill rakers.
