    Erik Åhlander has very kindly provided some habitat images and details for the L. thermalis profile.

    I wonder if this fish (http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/lepidocephalichthys-sp-le2/) might be L. alkaia? From the diagnosis: ‘distinguished from all other Lepidocephalichthys by a midlateral dark stripe on caudal fin, extending from base to terminus of fin, usually spanning rays 7–10′.

    Edit: forget that, I’d already checked with Justin Havird some months ago. 😳

    A couple of un¡dentified ones. The first fish was collected from Tonlé Sap in Cambodia by Martin Grimm, don’t have a locality for the second two pics. Any ideas?

    The first one looks a bit like Jörg Bohlens L. (cf.) irrorata.

    The other reminds me a bit on a colorless L. furcatus, not only because the forked tail fin.

    Cheers Thomas, if it was collected from Siam Reap would that not discount L. irrorata though?

    Was also thinking L. furcatus for the second fish.

    The caudals don’t look forked enough for furcatus?  What about micropogon?

    Mmm could be indeed – I’ve had doubts about our current image of that species: http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/lepidocephalichthys-micropogon/

    Maybe Martin is the first….:wink: Mmmh Cambodia. fishbase lists only two Lepidocephalichthys, birmanicus and hasselti. Have found only one pic with the title L. birmanicus: No idea if this is right. As many times before: it’s looks like a L. sp.

    After Darks hint, I’m wondering if this one also is a micropogon?
