    P. gelius has recently been redescribed and there are now three similar-looking valid species.

    Among our profile images these would appear to represent new species P. aurea:

    Puntius-gelius.jpgPuntius-gelius-ZH.jpgPuntius-gelius-Beta.jpg

    These should be P. gelius:

    Pethia-gelius-Beta.jpgPuntius-canius.jpgPuntius-gelius-RC.jpgPuntius-cf-gelius-Beta-2.jpgPuntius-cf-gelius-Beta.jpg

    …and I think these are P. canius but would appreciate a second opinion:

    All the pics of Aurea seem correct ,no colour in the ventral fins being the best way to identify them !

    The Gelius look right ! 

    just a bit curious about the Canius ,the 1st and 3rd pic look right ! the 2nd pic looks a little like Gelius ?

     

    I picked up a nice group of Aurea recently ,they were being sold as Gelius :) ,if I’m honest Aurea is the fish I had always thought to be the true Gelius , until I read  Marc knight’s recent paper !

    That’s exactly what Marc Knight said Andy, guess that second fish is gelius! :)

    Will sort the profiles out over the next day or two.
