    The Botia were collected from the Ganges drainage in Uttar Pradesh, around 200 kms south of Almora. I think  Botia cf.almorhae is the safest id at this point???

    Yeah guess so Balaji. Do you know if anyone is working with Indian botiids at the moment?

    I do not know of anyone working on Indian botiids presently Matt. 

     

    Another Schistura from the Ganges drainage.

    This one looks similar to some pics we have of specimens collected in Nepal…

    These banded Schistura can be a nightmare to id at times,there’s just too many of them.

     

    Now for a species that was available only during spring each year. These were collected by the hundreds during this time and were otherwise never available.  I believe the stripes are a result of stress.

     Schistura corica

    Collected in 2014

    I also managed to collect this species in Nepal during one of my trips but all I have is a terrible picture of a very forlorn looking specimen.

    Couldn’t agree more. Stopped doing profiles for the majority of Schistura since it was driving me up the wall.

    Alternative suggestion re. S. corica – could the stripes be subadult patterning?

    Pictures of the specimens (specimens of even 1″ TL carried spots) from 2014 were taken immediately after collection, hence none of the specimens seem to sport stripes. Pictures of the 2015 lot were taken a long time after they were collected hereby leading to stress colouration.

    Wow, then it is quite a dramatic change. Thanks for the explanation. :)
