    Was just checking something else to do with Rasboras elsewhere and noticed dandia wasn’t listed, instead it seems to have been placed into synonymy with daniconius. When was this?

    According to Eschmeyer, Leuciscus dandia was placed into synonymy with Rasbora daniconius by Brittan (1972), but Silva, Maduwage and Pethiyagoda (2010) re-established it as distinct and in Rasbora.

     

    Here’s the latter paper:

    It was that paper that helped lead to the conclusion that what we have are dandia and not wilpita as originally thought, but dandia is no longer listed on Fishbase (I’m sure it was previously), instead you are directed to daniconius.

    It may be that for some reason Fishbase has missed this.  Dr. Eschmeyer who maintains the database at California Academy of Science has the references I cited previously.  These two sources are usually in sync.

    Agree that CAS tends to be more accurate than Fishbase, especially in terms of recent developments.
