On two new species and notes on some other forms

Introduction and List of species

In the first article of the series a general account of the localities and list of specimens obtained therefrom were given, and here we propose to give a complete list of fish-fauna of Deolali, to describe the two new species of Barbus and Parapsilorhynchus , and to add notes on certain species whose existing descriptions require amplification. In preparing the following list we have adopted the classification proposed by Jordan 1 , and have given the Bhil names of the various species as supplied to us by Mr. A. G. L. Fraser. Information regarding the distribution ot the different species of fishes in Deolali waters is also included in the list.

Scientific Name Bhil Name Local Distribution
44. Ophicephalus gachua (Ham.) Dakhia and Dhakaray 1, 5, 9, 10, 12, 23, 31, 33, 35 and 40
