    Abstract

    Horabagrus melanosoma was described from West Venpala in the lower reaches of the Manimala River, in the state of
    Kerala, India. It was distinguished from its nearest congener, H. brachysoma based on a combination of characters including
    darker body colour, shorter pelvic fin and greater number of anal fin rays. Examination of the type material revealed
    significant morphometric and meristic discrepancies with the original description. Based on multivariate morphometric,
    and genetic analysis of topotypical specimens, we propose that H. melanosoma should be treated as a junior synonym of
    H. brachysoma.
