Suggestions for "Et Cetera" portion of the book

The concept parcels out Schisturas, Hillstreams, Botias, Kuhli's, and "other exceptional loaches" that don't fit into those groups but must be included.
So far, the list I have assembled is:
Acanthobitis botia - zipper loach
Acatopsis choirorhyncus - horse-face
Cobitis taenia taenia
Lepidocephalichthys guntea - peppered loach
L. thermalis - Indian spiny loach
Misgurnus anguillicaudatus - dojo
Somileptes gongata - moose-face
Vaillantella maassi (which I think we ought to dub "dragon loach" for the sake of it).

Any additions or subtractions - or corrections?
