  • Title
    Oreichthys andrewi (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) a new species from Assam, northeastern India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Oreichthys cosuatis (Hamilton, 1822) was believed to be a monotypic genus widely distributed throughout India, Myanmar and ranging up to Thailand. Though the genus Oreichthys was known to have an incomplete lateral line, certain studies showed that there are species possessing a complete lateral line, as well as a much higher lateral line scale count. One such species is described here as a new species, Oreichthys andrewi, which can be distinguished from its congeners by the possession of a complete lateral line; 30+1 scales in the longitudinal series; ½ 4 / 1 / 2 ½ scales in the transverse row; 9 predorsal scales and bright yellow pelvic fins.

  • 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.
