    CEPF Western Ghats Special Series: Back from obscurity: notes on the current distribution, threats and conservation status of a poorly known cyprinid, Hypselobarbus lithopidos (Day, 1874) from the Western Ghats of India"
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Hypselobarbus lithopidos (Day, 1874) is a poorly known cyprinid fish endemic to the rivers of the Western Ghats of India. This species is assessed as Data Deficient in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species with a note that it could be possibly extinct. Here, we provide information on a recent collection of this species from the type locality, and discuss its current distribution, ecology, threats and conservation. A revised Red List status for the species is also proposed.

  • Title
    CEPF Western Ghats Special Series: Re-description of Hypselobarbus lithopidos (Teleostei: Cyprinidae), based on its rediscovery from the Western Ghats, India, with notes on H. thomassi
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    In recent times, though the genus Hypselobarbus has been studied substantially, the identities of individual species remain ambiguous. Hypselobarbus lithopidos has been assessed as Data Deficient in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species with a speculation that it could possibly be extinct as there has not been any validated record of this species since 1941 from its known range. In this work we report a population of this species from its type locality and re-describe this little known species to clear any taxonomic ambiguity that surrounds the identity of this species. We also attempt to clear the taxonomic ambiguity that surrounds the identity of the Critically Endangered H. thomassi with fresh collections from the type locality are discussed.

  • Title
    Distribution, threats and conservation status of Hypselobarbus thomassi (Day, 1874), a poorly known cyprinid fish of the Western Ghats freshwater ecoregion
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The Red Canarese Barb, Hypselobarbus thomassi (Day, 1874) is an endemic cyprinid fish of the rivers of the Western Ghats of India, which has been listed as ‘Critically Endangered’ in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Like many of its congeners, H. thomassi is poorly known with very few verified records and voucher specimens in the past decades. Based on fresh materials collected from three west flowing rivers of Kerala, we provide information on its identity, distribution, phylogenetic position, threats and conservation. An updated conservation assessment of this species following the IUCN Red List criteria is also provided.

  • Title
    Rediscovery of Hypselobarbus pulchellus, an endemic and threatened barb (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) of the Western Ghats, with notes on H. dobsoni and H. jerdoni
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Hypselobarbus pulchellus, is a poorly known species, with very few verifiable records since its description in 1870. Many authors have considered H. pulchellus to be a synonym of either H. dobsoni or H. jerdoni. This lack of information and clarity on its identity has led to H. pulchellus being categorized as a ‘Critically Endangered’ (possibly Extinct) species in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Based on the collection of H. pulchellus from its type locality, we re-describe this little known species, and clear its taxonomic ambiguity vis-à-vis H. dobsoni and H. jerdoni.
