|Scientific Name||Tachysurus gracilis (Li, J, X-L Chen & BPL Chan, 2005)|
|Type Locality||China: Guangxi Province,|
|Size||173mm or 6.8" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.|
|Identification||Tachysurus can be identified by an extrascapular without a laterosensory canal, and a pterotic with a broad lateral laminar expansion. It is among the most speciose catfish groups in East Asia and its members inhabit habitats ranging from fast-flowing hillstreams to large rivers.
The genera Pelteobagrus and Pseudobagrus form a monophyletic group, but the monophyly of the two genera are uncertain. Traditionally, members of the genus Pelteobagrus have been distinguished by their forked caudal fins (vs. truncate/emarginate caudal fins in Pseudobagrus). This convention is still largely used in current literature and is adhered to here. There are some Chinese species assigned to the genus Leiocassis (longirostris, crassilabris, tenuifurcatus, virgatus and argentivittatus), but have been tentatively placed in Pseudobagrus by Mo (1991).
|Sexing||Males have an elongate genital papilla in front of the anal fin.|
