Systomus rubrotinctus Jerdon has long been considered a synonym of Puntius arulius. Examination of ‘P. arulius’ collected from various parts of the Western Ghats revealed the presence of two distinct species: and the fish considered by Day as ‘P. arulius’ from Wayanad is in fact P. rubrotinctus. Based on the colour pattern, morphometrics and meristics, P. rubrotinctus is retrieved from the synonymy of P. arulius and redescribed. Puntius rubrotinctus can be distinguished from P. arulius by the… Expand

A synopsis of the South Asian fishes referred to Puntius (Pisces: Cyprinidae)
TLDR
An examination of external morphology, osteology, and analysis of 16S ribosomal RNA and cytochrome b gene fragments from 31 South Asian species hitherto referred to Puntius shows that these fishes represent at least five lineages recognisable as genera. Expand
Puntius madhusoodani (Teleostei: Cyprinidae), a new species of barb from Manimala River, Kerala, South India
Puntius madhusoodani, a new species of barb is described from Manimala River, Kerala, South India. This species can be distinguished from all its congeners by the combination of following characters:Expand
Vertebrate fauna of the Chambal River Basin, with emphasis on the National Chambal Sanctuary, India
TLDR
This research provides an updated checklist of vertebrate fauna of the Chambal River Basin in north-central India with an emphasis on the National ChambAl Sanctuary, providing an initial baseline of species for future research in this area. Expand
Identification of ornamental fishes for biosecurity
TLDR
A DNA barcoding approach for ornamental cyprinid fishes (Teleostei: Cypriniformes), an important group in terms of biosecurity risk, is examined, found to be highly congruent with the morphological assignments, with identification success rates up to 99%. Expand

An invasive lineage of sculpins, Cottus sp. (Pisces, Teleostei) in the Rhine with new habitat adaptations has originated from hybridization between old phylogeographic groups
TLDR
It is concluded that hybridization between long separated groups has lead to the fast emergence of a new, adaptationally distinct sculpin lineage that possesses a unique ecological potential that does not occur in either of the source populations from the Rhine or the Scheldt, which allows the colonization of new habitats that have been free of sculpins.

A molecular approach to detect hybridization between bream Abramis brama, roach Rutlius rutilus and rudd Scardinius erythrophthalmus
TLDR
Allele-specific amplification (ASA) proved to be an effective method for identifying hybrids and detected multiple ITS1 copies in fishes identified as purebred by morphological analysis, which suggests post-Fl hybridization and introgression may be occurring between roach and bream, and rudd and Bream, although some barriers appear to be suppressing backcrosses within the hybrid population.

Hybridisation between two cyprinid fishes in a novel habitat: genetics, morphology and life-history traits
TLDR
The success of roach × bream hybrids in Ireland is not due to a successful self reproducing lineage, and hybridisation represents a viable conduit for introgression of genes between roach and bream. Expand
Fertility of roach × bream hybrids, Rutilus rutilus (L.) ×Abramis brama (L.), and their identification
TLDR
Adult roach, bream and their presumed F1 hybrid from an Anglian Water reservoir were identified on the basis of morphological and meristic characteristics and intermediacy between the parents and back-crossed individuals, and similarity between F1 hybrids and their F2 progeny. Expand
Comparative analysis of inter population genetic diversity in Puntius filametosus using restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis
TLDR
The genetic variation in different population of the freshwater cyprinid Puntius filamentosus was studied using restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis and it was inferred that the population from Alancholai appeared to be unique among the other population of P. filamentosUS.
