Garra poecilura KULLANDER & FANG, 2004

October 21st, 2014 — 10:30pm

The Naung Pin Thar Chaung is located in a hilly area mostly comprising bamboo forest. In 1998 the water was clear, colourless and flowing at a moderate pace over a substrate of rocks and gravel. It was 1-2 metres wide and maximum depth was only 0.5 metres.

Due to the surrounding forest some stretches were shaded and others more open. Sympatric species included Garra spilota, Homalopteroides modestus, Mystus pulcher, and Xenentodon cancila, plus…

Garra qiaojiensis WU & YAO, 1977

October 21st, 2014 — 10:42am

G. qiaojiensis can be differentiated from closely-related congeners by the configuration of its proboscis, which is quadrate (1.6-1.8 times wider than long), reflected downwards against the snout and heavily tuberculated anteriorly, and the relative size of its mental disc which measures 48.7-55.9 % HL.

Garra rotundinasus (ZHANG, 2006)

October 20th, 2014 — 9:46am

Prior to its description, G. rotundinasus was considered to represent the congener G. gravleyi, but the latter is now accepted to occur only in the Salween and Manipur river basins. These two are separated from all other Garra species in China and Southeast Asia by possession of a weakly-devel…

Crossocheilus burmanicus HORA, 1936

August 25th, 2014 — 3:17pm

We’ve been unable to obtain a diagnosis for this species to date but it can at least be distinguished from those congeners traded as ‘Crossocheilus siamensis’ (an invalid name synonymous with C. oblongus, which is itself of questionable identity), ‘Siamese algae eater’, or ‘SAE’ by the fact that the dark lateral stripe does not extend into the caudal-fin.

Members of Crossocheilus are characterised by…

Abbottina rivularis (BASILEWSKY, 1855)

Chinese False Gudgeon

June 24th, 2014 — 6:58pm

Native to continental China, the Korean peninsula, and southern Japan. Type locality is given only as ‘Lakes and rivers, northern China’, with the type series possibly originating from the Pai-ho River near Beijing.

It has been widely introduced and is considered invasive elsewhere, including the Mekong river basin (records from Laos and Thailand), Salween river (Myanmar), northern Japan, Taiwan, Turkmeni…

February 15th, 2014 — 12:12pm

There is considerable confusion surrounding the identity of B. bagarius with its name having been widely applied to a relatively small species that is said to reach only 200 mm SL and considered to be common in northern India and much of Indochina.
