Resurrection of the genus Homalopteroides (Teleostei: Balitoridae) with a redescription of H. modestus (Vinciguerra 1890)

  title={Resurrection of the genus Homalopteroides (Teleostei: Balitoridae) with a redescription of H. modestus (Vinciguerra 1890)},
  author={Zachary S Randall and Lawrence M. Page},
The genus Homalopteroides Fowler 1905 is resurrected and distinguished from the genus Homaloptera van Hasselt 1823 based on a combination of characters including a unique mouth morphology, dorsal-fin origin over pelvic fin, 60 lateralline scales, and 30 predorsal scales. Species included in Homalopteroides are H. wassinkii (Bleeker 1853), H. modestus (Vinciguerra 1890), H. rupicola (Prashad & Mukerji 1929), H. smithi (Hora 1932), H. stephensoni (Hora 1932), H. weberi (Hora 1932), H. tweediei…

On the paraphyly of Homaloptera (Teleostei: Balitoridae) and description of a new genus of hillstream loaches from the Western Ghats of India.
Homaloptera van Hasselt 1823 as treated historically exhibits substantial morphological diversity and is paraphyletic based on both morphological and molecular data. The morphological diversity and
A New Species of Homalopteroides (Teleostei: Balitoridae) from Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo
Homalopteroides avii, new species, is described from the Rajang River basin, Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo. It is distinguished from all other species of Homalopteroides by a wider gape of 28.5–33.3% HL
Revision of the hillstream lizard loaches, genus Balitoropsis (Cypriniformes: Balitoridae).
The genus Balitoropsis Smith 1945 consists of two species, B. zollingeri and B. ophiolepis, which have been reported from Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Java, and Borneo.
Redescription of the giant Southeast Asian millipede Spirobolusmacrurus Pocock, 1893 and its assignment to the new genus Macrurobolus gen. nov. (Diplopoda, Spirobolida, Pachybolidae)
A new genus of the millipede family Pachybolidae from Southeast Asia is described, having the preanal ring process long and protruding beyond the anal valves and the anterior gonopod telopodite distally abruptly narrowed, forming an extremely long, slender, elevated process curved caudad.
They like to move it (move it): walking kinematics of balitorid loaches of Thailand.
The hypothesis that balitorid species with more robust connections between the pelvic and axial skeleton (M3 morphotype) are more effective at walking than species with reduced connectivity (M1 morphotypes) was tested and it was predicted that robust connections would facilitate travel per step and increase mass support during movement.
Head width influences flow sensing by the lateral line canal system in fishes
Fish head width, which varies widely across species, influences how the lateral line canal system can sense both steady and vortical flows, which provides insight into the sensory ecology of fishes and has implications for the design of autonomous underwater vehicles.


The Malayan Cyprinoid fishes of the family Homalopteridae
Nine species, all of the genus Homaloptera Van Hasselt, are described, including a new record and two new species.
Indochinese nemacheilines : a revision of nemacheiline loaches (Pisces: Cypriniformes) of Thailand, Burma, Laos, Cambodia and southern Viet Nam
Freshwater loaches of the subfamily Nemacheilinae are relatively common fishes in Southeast Asia, important ecologically as well as in the lucrative aquarium trade. They are also among the most
A new species of hill stream loach (Teleostei: Balitoridae) from Central Kalimantan, with redescriptions of Homaloptera tateregani Popta and Homaloptera stephensoni Hora
Homaloptera batek, new species, is a riffle specialist differentiated by its unique colour pattern for a species of Homaloptera, consisting of a series of round blotches interspaced by smaller
Acanthocobitis pictilis, a new species of loach from Myanmar and Thailand Teleostei Nemacheilidae
Acanthocobitis pictilis, new species, is described from the Ataran drainage in Myanmar and the Mae Khlong drainage in Thailand and is distinguished by, among other characters, its colour pat-tern.
Schistura aurantiaca, a new species from the Mae Khlong basin, Thailand (Teleostei: Nemacheilidae)
This species is distinguished from all other species of Schistura by a unique color pattern of 3-9 orange bars on the side of the body, with the 1st bar immediately behind the head and the 2nd bar near the dorsal-fin origin and widely separated so that most of the nape and the anterior side ofthe body are uniformly brown.
Classification, zoogeography and evolution of the fishes of the Cyprinoid families Homalopteridae and Gastromyzonidae.
The Homalopteridae and Gastromyzonidae, which are found in the swift currents of the torrential streaIllil in South Eastern Asia, constitute two remarkable families of Cyprinoid fishes. Habitudinal
Inferring the Tree of Life of the order Cypriniformes, the earth's most diverse clade of freshwater fishes: Implications of varied taxon and character sampling
In this early synthesis of the understanding of the phylogenetic relationships of Cypriniformes, all types of data have contributed historically to improving the understanding, but not all analyses are complementary in taxon sampling, thus precluding directUnderstanding of the impact ofTaxon sampling on achieving accurate phylogenetic inferences.
