In Response To: Question for Heok Hee (Mark in Vancouver)

The correct generic name should be Canthophrys, not Somileptes.

See Kottelat, M, 1998. On the valid generic names for the Indian fishes usually referred to Salmostoma and Somileptes (Teleostei: Cyprinidae and Cobitidae). Journal of South Asian Natural History 3: 117119.
