The genus Balitoropsis Smith 1945 consists of two species, B. zollingeri (Bleeker 1853) and B. ophiolepis (Bleeker 1853). Homaloptera maxinae Fowler 1937, Balitoropsis bartschi Smith 1945, and Homaloptera nigra Alfred 1969 are junior synonyms of B. zollingeri. Balitoropsis zollingeri has been reported from Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Java, and Borneo, and B. ophiolepis is known from Sumatra, Java, and Borneo. 
Oxyropsis ephippia, a New Hypoptopomatine Catfish (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) from Guyana.
The report of O. ephippia from the Essequibo is the first record of the genus in a river system that drains the north-central portion of the Guiana Shield into the Atlantic Ocean.
Revision of the horseface loaches (Cobitidae, Acantopsis), with descriptions of three new species from Southeast Asia.
Although the long snout of Acantopsis is perhaps the most emblematic attribute of the genus, its relative length increases with growth, reducing its taxonomic value, and high molecular divergence between even the most morphologically similar species is revealed.


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
Resurrection of the genus Homalopteroides (Teleostei: Balitoridae) with a redescription of H. modestus (Vinciguerra 1890)
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
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
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.
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
Two New Ricefishes of the Genus Oryzias (Atherinomorpha: Beloniformes: Adrianichthyidae) Augment the Endemic Freshwater Fish Fauna of Southeastern Sulawesi, Indonesia
Maximum parsimony and Bayesian inference analyses of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (COI) sequence, the DNA barcode, support the hypothesis that the two new species are sequenced representatives of three species.
An illustrated translation of Bleeker’s Fishes of the Indian Archipelago Part II Cyprini
Pieter Bleeker’s first revision of the Order Cyprini is translated and completed by including the figures from the Atlas Ichthyologique that were intended to be published with this revision.
The Bleeker/Günther letters and the sale of Bleeker specimens to the British Museum
A survey is given of the correspondence between the ichthyologists Bleeker (The Hague) and Gunther (British Museum, Natural History, London), mainly dealing with the sale of fishes and some other
Nomenclatural status of the fish names created by J. C. van Hasselt (1823) and of some cobitoid genera
The nomenclatural status of the 16 genera and 42 species of fishes described by van Hasselt is reviewed and some cobitoid generic names are reviewed with greater details.
Genetic identification and color descriptions of early life-history stages of Belizean Phaeoptyx and Astrapogon (Teleostei: Apogonidae) with Comments on identification of adult Phaeoptyx
Comparison of preserved voucher specimens or digital color photographs of those specimens taken prior to preservation yielded sufficient information to separate all early life-history stages of Belizean Phaeoptyx and Astrapogon and provided additional information for field identification of adult Phaeiptyx.
