    Some pics to add to the database. Confirmations or denials on these much appreciated!

    Young P. orphoides?

    P. trifasciatus?

    P. binotatus?

    Female P. tiantian?

    Now this one came labelled as P. sp. cf. terio

    …but I think it might be the same as this, labelled P. sp. ‘Yunnan’?

    …and finally this which I’ve no idea about:

    Hi Matt I’d agree on the first pic being a young Orphodes !

    The second and third fishes {striped barbs ] there is a paper that depicts the different members of that group ,might be worth checking ,its quite detailed !

    I’d say the one labelled as Terio is correct ,the males get a reddish lateral band when well conditioned , note the one side spot !

    The fish you thought could be the same isn’t ,its one of the Ticto’s /rolleyes.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:rolleyes:” border=”0″ alt=”rolleyes.gif” /> /wub.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:wub:” border=”0″ alt=”wub.gif” />

    I’ve seen and kept the fish labelled Binotatus ,one of my books on Thai fishes shows a very similar looking fish under the name P.rhombeus they look very close to your pic ,so I guess thai fish is a bit enigmatic ?

    The Tiantian looks like a Tiantian ?

    Wouldn’t it be great if the scientists had lab technicians who could condition the fishes and take photo’s of both live and dead , male and female specimens

    Andy, there are stories regarding scientists who failed to recognise living examples of animals they classified themselves as dead specimens in the lab! I think that there is an example of that in CRUSTACEA GUIDE OF THE WORLD by Helmut Debelius.

    I think it would help in a lot of cases but apparently expensive to add pics to papers?

    I have the paper hence my guess at P. trifasciatus as it’s the only one with 3-4 body stripes in adults.

    The last fish looks like a P.vattatus , a very nicely coloured one
