    Charles pic 1 should be H. orthogoniata, pic 2 H. parclietella. Do you guys want the paper?

    The red Homaloptera seems strange to me…

    Ahhh I see, thank you. I was looking for a red one in Charles’ pics, they all looked reddish to me, but not like that one.

    Are the smaller species like H. smithi territorial with one another or other balitorids?

    Charles were these two imported together?

    I just wonder if the first might be H. ogilviei

    Hi Charles the second fish is definitely H. parclitella and it’s supposed to occur sympatrically with H. ogilviei which is what got me thinking.

    The description of H. ogilviei says it has “a transverse patch from the dorsal fin base narrowing ventrally towards the origin of the pelvic fin. A second such patch across the back mid-way between the dorsal and caudal fins and extending towards the anal fin origin. A third transverse patch around the caudal base and extending on to the lower lobe of that fin. A dorsal patch between the head and dorsal fin”.

    Here’s the image of the type series, what do you think?

    Ref: Alfred, E. R. 1967. Homaloptera ogilviei, a new species of homalopterid fish from Malaya. Copeia 1967(3): 587-591.

    Hi Thomas do you have any idea where this fish was imported from, or what it came in with?

    Hi Matt, they came in with Homaloptera smithi and one H. zollingeri. I thought it was a yunnanensis and in Laos this three species occur together.

    Three others of them I’ve found in a shipment of the small H. tweediei.
