 thanks  guys.  .  .  .  if  was  on  my  list  for  a  long  time  now.  
 
      Really  hard  fish  to  come  by  and  also  in  decent  shape.  .  .  .  it  is  supposedly  from  Kudremukh  zone  (i  hope  i  slept  it  right).
 
      I  supposedly  grows  quite  big  according  to  folklore.  .  .   but  is  now  a  rarity  now
 
      Came  across  one  more  fish,  but  came  in  bad  condition  and  it  did  not  make.  .  .  .it  is  treat  for  native  fish  keepers
 
      Check  out  the  mouth  structure  and  the  tubercles

 Yes  i  thought  it  would  be  valuable  and  for  the  time  being  i  have  preserved  it  in  my  freezer
 
    I  think  it  is  a  Hypselobarbus.  .  .  .  probably  H  kurali

 Great.  There  is  not  too  much  information  on  those,  so  it  should  be  interesting.

 Hypselobarbus  has  been  driving  many  people  up  the  wall.
 
 I  would  id  it  as  H.  curmuca.  I  know  there  is  lotta  difference  in  opinion  about  H.  curmuca  and  H.  kurali.  
 
 I  id  it  that  way  maybe  because  I  have  not  yet  seen  a  single  specimen  of  H.  kurali.
 
 Good  thing  you  preserved  it........sure  would  serve  as  a  good  comparative  material  for  anyone  working  on  this  group.

 Hope  you  preserved  them  all..............these  are  real  precious  Smile  I  would  love  to  examine  them  when  I  manage  to  meet  you  sometime  Smile  
 
 With  just  the  photos  I  venture  to  id....
 
 First  specimen:  Hypselobarbus  kolus  
 
 Reason  for  id:  Scales  relatively  small;  41  lateral  line  scales;  caudal  tipped  with  grey
 
 Second  specimen:  Hypselobarbus  curmuca
 
 Reason  for  id:  Snout  conical;  band  of  pores  on  cheek  (just  variation  in  pore  density  or  arrangement  need  not  necessary  be  a  different  species  as  there  is  lot  of  variation);  Caudal  with  black  tips;  39  lateral  line  scales;  Mouth  highly  sub-terminal
 
 Third  specimen:  Hypselobarbus  thomassi
 
 Reason  for  id:  the  only  one  in  the  Hypselobarbus  group  to  have  lateral  line  scales  below  34.  The  specimen  has  31  scales  if  am  not  wrong.
 
 These  are  inferences  by  just  closely  looking  at  the  photos  and  using  available  literature.  Closer  examination  of  gill  rakers  and  mouth  parts  can  change  the  identity  all  together
 
 This  is  to  the  best  of  my  ability.........hope  it  helps  Thumb Up
