New Akysis

Post by Silurus »

Ng, HH, P Pawangkhanant & C Suwannapoom, 2022. Plugging the gap: description of a new Akysis species represents a new record of the genus from the Mae Klong drainage in western Thailand (Teleostei: Siluriformes: Akysidae). Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters doi:10.23788/IEF-1186.


A new species of sisoroid catfish in the genus Akysis is described from the Mae Klong drainage in western Thailand, marking the first record of this genus there. Akysis patrator, new species, can be distinguished from congeners in having the adipose fin preceded by a long, low ridge contacting the base of the last dorsal-fin ray and a colour pattern of a light brown body with a chocolate brown reticulate pattern on its sides.
