Re: past Glyptothorax species

I have double checked - ventral picture is that of the Glyptothorax on the first photo for sure.

Re: Pseudobagarius sp. ?

Thank you, Shovelnose and Silurus. Do you think if I make other pics (dorsally and ventrally) they may help?

past Glyptothorax species

I have decided to dig in my pictures and see if I have any pics of Glyptothorax I had in the past. Found some... 1) were sold as G. siamensis 2) and 3) Were sold as G. sinensis 4) I don't remember under what name I bought them (as I recall G. siamensis) I would appreciate opinions on what species th...

Glyptothorax telchitta?

I have 2 of this for more than 2 years. Bought as Glyptothorax telchitta but I guess they don't look like those... I would appreciate opinions on their identification. Again, no geography unfortunately.
Thanks,

Pseudobagarius sp. ?

Bought this more than a year ago as Pseudobagarius sp. No geographic data unfortunately. I would appreciate any opinions on its species (or possibly even genus) identity.
Thank you,

Hara filamentosa?

Bought this as Hara filamentosa a while ago. No geographic data available. I would appreciate your experienced opinion. Hope my pics would allow at least to guess the species.

Re: Astroblepus

Thanks, Eric!
What do you think on this statement "Adipose fin with a small nodule embedded half postero-superior of it" in relation to my fish?
Cheers,
Dmcat
P.S. I've checked the teeth - the most anterior row is mostly unicuspid (only few weakly bicuspid), all rows after clearly bicuspid.

Re: Astroblepus

Jools: Yes, I've got it and just sent my reply. Sorry for delay. Eric: Thanks for the key translation. Don't want to be a parasite but do you think you can get some pictures of the character states. Let's say for the first pamphlet as a start. I see a some kind of spine in my fish (see the pics) but...

Re: Astroblepus

That's made me wonder too - he saw the tail correct in one species and didn't in another. Though there is no (visible) adipose fin in A. grixalvii on his drawing...

Re: Astroblepus

Hi Eric, Thanks for even more info. I have one more and rather naive question. According to fishbase there are 56 valid Astroblepus species totally and 24 are known from Colombia. Could it be something else beside cyclopus and grixalvii? Just theoretically. And thanks for considering my photos of ap...

Re: Astroblepus

Huge thanks to everybody for comments and suggestions. Special thanks to Eric for original description and pics. I have counted the fin rays: pectotral - 11, ventral - 5; anal - 6 (that's was hard); dorsal - 7; caudal - 13. I have also noticed that the adipose fin is not quite as on original illustr...

Astroblepus

Hi! I've bought these as Astroblepus cf. cyclopus. They are from Cundinamarca, Colombia. I'd love to hear the expert opinions on identity of these fish. If, of course, my poor pics would allow to do so. My other question is under what species should I add them to "my fish"? Thanks ahead! D...
