    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    This overview, based on published and unpublished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.

    Any idea of cost Erwin?

    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).

    Finally there is a color picture of the real Pangio kuhlii  !

    Ambastaia sidthimunki (Klausewitz, 1959)?

    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/2012/f/zt03586p346.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 😉

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