    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"
    Journal Article
    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.
