Pangio semicincta (FRASER-BRUNNER, 1940)

'Kuhli' Loach

March 13th, 2012 — 1:25pm

This species is among the most frequently-misidentified in the hobby, almost always being traded as P. kuhlii. However the latter is currently considered endemic to Java, from where commercial collections are almost unheard of, and has possibly never been seen in aquaria.

Pangio sp. 'PAN01'

March 13th, 2012 — 1:25pm

The fish in our images above were imported together don’t correspond to any of the described species of Pangio though they can be assigned to the P. kuhlii species group with a degree of certainty. Unfortunately the live appearance of P. kuhlii itself is a mystery to aquarists since it’s currently considered endemic to Java and may have never been seen in the hobby.

Pangio sp. 'PAN02'

March 13th, 2012 — 1:25pm

The fish in our images don’t correspond to any of the described members of the genus but can be assigned to the P. oblonga species group with a degree of certainty. It’s apparently exported as a contaminant among shipments of a uniformly brown-coloured fish with unpublished genetic analyses suggesting the two might be variants of the same species (J. Bohlen, pers. comm.).

Among congeners it may be related to P. alcoides Kottela…

There are two similar-looking forms; one has a darker body, dark pigmentation in the pectoral fins and barbels and a blue sheen on the head, while the…

Pangio shelfordii (POPTA, 1903)

March 13th, 2012 — 1:25pm

Patterning is highly variable depending both within and between populations and the species may comprise an assemblage containing a number of taxa (Kottelat and Lim, 1993; Tan and Kottelat, 2009). For example, those from Singapore and Johor possessing intricate mottling on the dorsal surface while individuals from Terengganu have a series of saddle-like markings either alternating or connecting with the midlateral markings.

March 13th, 2012 — 1:25pm

One of a handful of Pangio spp. traded under the generic name ‘eel loach’. Wild populations tend to differ in colour pattern to some extent, with some exhibiting a more intense lateral stripe while others display an irregular pattern of fine dark spots on the body, for example.
