Channa baramensis (STEINDACHNER, 1901)

Baram Snakehead

June 30th, 2013 — 3:24pm

This species was considered a synonym of Channa melasoma for a number of years prior to its revalidation by Ng. et al. (1996).

Specimens larger than around 120 mm SL can be distinguished ´╗┐by possession of a black spot in the centre of numerous body scales and a barred caudal-fin pattern, characters which are missing in both C. melasoma and the similar-looking C. cyanospilos.
