Current Botine taxonmy

Igor Sheremetyev sent me this complete and up to date listing of all the taxa for Botia species, with original authors and dates they were recorded. Sadly, I don't seem able to send it as a table, the way it was sent to me. Anyone who wants to see the orginal can have it forwarded just for asking.

The first name that appears for each fish is the legitimate name, which Igor encourages us to adopt. This is followed by the various synonymous names. I love that in 1839 McClelland described the Yoyo as a species of Schistura. Apparently, we've come a long way to better understanding and classification.
