Glyptothorax conirostre (Steindachner 1867)

Glyptosternum conirostre Steindachner 1867   ZBK : 532 [16], pl. 6 (fig. 2). Type locality: Simla [Ganges drainage] , Himachal Pradesh, nw. India. Holotype: not found at NMW.

Distribution: Ganges drainage, India (Ng, 2005a).

Remarks: Nearly all refereces of this species since the original description appear to be based on a species that does not have the outermost rays of the pectoral fins plaited and modified to form an adhesive apparatus; however, Steindachner’s original description clearly indicates this condition in the species. Reports of this species from the Indus drainage are referable to Glyptothorax punjabensis   ZBK (Mirza & Kashmiri, 1971).
