Yaoshania, new genus, is described with Protomyzon pachychilus as type species. Yaoshania is distinguished from othergenera of Balitoridae by its larger gill opening, a lip lamina at angle of mouth, and the rostral fold with four notches toaccommodate rostral barbels. A lectotype is designated for Y. pachychilus. Erromyzon kalotaenia, new species, is de-scribed from Guangxi, China. It is distinguished from other species of Erromyzon by the very reduced median lobe of therostral fold; the lower…

Erromyzon damingshanensis, a new sucker loach (Teleostei: Cypriniformes: Gastromyzontidae) from the Pearl River drainage of Guangxi, China
TLDR
The new species Erromyzon damingshanensis is distinguished from the other species of the genus in having a crescentic median lobe of the rostral fold and postlabial groove broadly interrupted medially.

TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of Yaoshania pachyChilus (Protomyzon pachychilus) was determined for the first time and only the tRNA-Ser was not folded into a typical clover-leaf secondary structure as it lacks the dihydrouridine arm.
Early morphological development of Erromyzon kalotaenia (Teleostei: Gastromyzontidae)
TLDR
Early morphological development of Erromyzon kalotaenia, a species of the Gastromyzontidae distributed in Guangxi, China, through the pre-incubation embryos to the juvenile stage was investigated.
Evolutionary relationships of two balitorids (Cypriniformes, Balitoridae) revealed by comparative mitogenomics
TLDR
The divergence time estimation indicated that the balitorids distributed in Mt. Dayaoshan might have originated and evolved following the flattening and uplifting of the Yunnan–Guizhou Plateau during the late Miocene to late Pliocene.

TLDR
The present author thinks that the primitive Homalopterid fishes might have originated in thenorth of the SE peninsula of Asia and in southwestern China probably at the end of Miocene or the beginning of Pliocene, with further development and dispersal later on.
