Ricefishes, known best by the model organism, the medaka, Oryzias latipes Temminck & Schlegel, 1846, comprise the family Adrianichthyidae, which ranges broadly throughout fresh and brackish waters of Central, South and Southeast Asia and the Indo-Malay-Philippines Archipelago as far east as Timor. Twenty-eight Recent species are recognized here in two monophyletic genera, Adrianichthys and Oryzias. Xenopoecilus and Horaichthys are placed in synonymy of Oryzias for the first time. Adrianichthys… 

Origin and intra-island diversification of Sulawesi endemic Adrianichthyidae.

Phylogenetic interrelationships, taxonomy, and reductive evolution in the Neotropical electric fish genus Hypopygus (Teleostei, Ostariophysi, Gymnotiformes)

A phylogenetic reconstruction of the Neotropical electric fish genus Hypopygus based on 47 parsimony-informative morphological characters is presented. A series of synapomorphies support the

Species compositions and ecology of the riverine ichthyofaunas in two Sulawesian islands in the biodiversity hotspot of Wallacea.

TLDR
The samples from the two islands contained only one species definitively endemic to Sulawesi, which implies that the major adaptive radiation of freshwater fishes in Sulaw Indonesia occurred in those lacustrine environments rather than in rivers.

A New, Remarkably Colorful, Small Ricefish of the Genus Oryzias (Beloniformes, Adrianichthyidae) from Sulawesi, Indonesia

TLDR
Oryzias woworae, the smallest known ricefish from Sulawesi, is hypothesized to be a member of an unnamed clade of ricefishes diagnosed by a truncate, rather than lunate or emarginate, caudal fin.

Taxonomical status of endemic freshwater ichthyofauna of Sulawesi

The freshwaters of Sulawesi are the habitat of numerous endemic Indonesian ichthyofauna that are not found anywhere else in the world. About 68 endemic fish species described from the Sulawesi’s

A New Riverine Ricefish of the Genus Oryzias (Beloniformes, Adrianichthyidae) from Malili, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia

TLDR
Oryzias dopingdopingensis, a new species of ricefish, from Doping-doping River, a river in Malili in central Sulawesi, Indonesia, is described and it is observed that females of O. dopingdancingensis, new species, deposit eggs soon after spawning and exhibit no maternal care.

Dependence of Hainan medaka, Oryzias curvinotus (Nichols & Pope, 1927), on salinity in the Tien Yen estuary of northern Vietnam

Species of the genus Oryzias are models for studies of adaptation to osmotic environments because they demonstrate inter-species adaptability. Oryzias curvinotus , a fresh and brackish water species,

NOMORHAMPHUS REX, A NEW SPECIES OF VIVIPAROUS HALFBEAK (ATHERINOMORPHA: BELONIFORMES: ZENARCHOPTERIDAE) ENDEMIC TO SULAWESI SELATAN, INDONESIA

Nomorhamphus rex, a new species of viviparous halfbeak, is described from three small rivers in Sulawesi Selatan, Indonesia. The new species differs from all other Nomorhamphus in anal-fi n

A New Ricefish of the Genus Oryzias (Beloniformes, Adrianichthyidae) from Lake Tiu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia

TLDR
Oryzias soerotoi, a new species of ricefish, from Lake Tiu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, is described by combination of brilliant orange coloration in the dorsal and ventral margins of the caudal fins of adult males.

MOLECULAR PERSPECTIVE ON EVOLUTION AND ZOOGEOGRAPHY OF CYPRINODONTID KILLIFISHES (TELEOSTEI; ATHERINOMORPHA)

TLDR
Zoogeographic analysis of this phylogeny suggests a Tethyan distribution for the ancestral cyprinodontid lineage and range expansion, permitted by the formation of epicontinental seas in the Cretaceous, may explain the presence of Orestias, most closely related to the Mediterranean Aphanius, in Andean South America.

Relationships of Oryzias, and the groups of atherinomorph fishes

TLDR
It is concluded that atherinoids are not presently a definable group, but that killifishes and the ricefishes plus halfbeaks and allies are, and the monophyly of the Atherinomorpha is supported.

Adrianichthys roseni and Oryzias nebulosus, two new ricefishes (Atherinomorpha: Beloniformes: Adrianichthyidae) from Lake Poso, Sulawesi, Indonesia

TLDR
Adrianichthys roseni and its sole congener, A. kruyti, are distinguished from other relatively large-bodied ricefishes, Xenopoecilus, in having orbits that project beyond the dorsal profile of the head; paired preethmoid cartilages; and 13–16 (versus 8–13) dorsal fin rays.

Relationships of sauries and needlefishes (Teleostei: Scomberesocoidea) to the internally fertilizing halfbeaks (Zenarchopteridae) based on the pharyngeal jaw apparatus

TLDR
This analysis indicates that sauries are most closely related to needlefishes, supporting the historical concept of the superfamily Scomberesocoidea as a monophyletic assemblage.

Fresh-water fishes of Kampuchea

TLDR
Two hundred and fifteen species in 127 genera and 47 families of inland water fishes are reported from Kampuchea, with Explanations of two particular zoogeographic patterns are presented.

Morphometric and meristic variation in ricefishes, genusOryzias: a comparison with cytogenetic data

TLDR
External anatomical data mostly agree with a classification of ricefishes based on karyology; although, like the cytogenetic data, they are not sufficient to distinguish all species, or to define monophyletic groups.

Karyotype Evolution and Relationship of a Small Ricefish, Oryzias minutillus, from Thailand

TLDR
The karyotypical difference was detected between specimens from Bangkok and Chiang Mai, and the karyotype evolution and interrelationship of this species among Oryzias are discussed from the cytogenetic and reproductive viewpoints.

Phylogenetic relationships among atheriniform fishes (Teleostei: Atherinomorpha)

TLDR
Bedotia, Rheocles, and melanotaeniines are shown to be derived within atheriniforms rather than the plesiomorphic sister groups to a paraphyletic ‘atherinoid’ group.
