– Celestichthys margaritatus, a new genus and species of Danioinae, is described from a rapidly developing locality in the Salween basin about 70–80 km northeast of Inle Lake in northern Myanmar. Males and females are strikingly colouful. It is apparently most closely related to two danioins endemic to Inle, Microrasbora rubescens and “Microrasbora” erythromicron. The latter species may be congeneric with the new species. The new genus is identified as a danioin by specializations on its lower… Expand
