Euchiloglanis Regan, 1907   ZBK

Fig. 18

Chimarrichthys Sauvage, 1874   ZBK : 332. (Types species: Chimarrichthys davidi Sauvage, 1874   ZBK , by monotypy). Gender masculine.

Euchiloglanis Regan, 1907   ZBK : 158. (Types species: Chimarrichthys davidi Sauvage, 1874   ZBK , by being a replacement name. Proposed as a replacement for Chimarrichthys Sauvage, 1874   ZBK , then considered to be preoccupied by Cheimarrichthys Haast, 1874   ZBK in fishes). Gender masculine.

Coraglanis Hora & Silas, 1952b   ZBK : 12. (Type species: Euchiloglanis kishinouyei Kimura, 1934   ZBK , by original designation). Gender masculine. Synonomized with Euchiloglanis   ZBK by Chu (1981).

Diagnosis (based, in part, on Chu 1981): Interrupted post-labial groove; gill openings not extending onto venter; homodont dentition; pointed teeth in both jaws; tooth patches in upper jaw joined into cresent-shaped band; 12-14 branched pectoral rays.

Euchiloglanis   ZBK is distinguished from Oreoglanis   ZBK , Pseudexostoma   ZBK , Exostoma   ZBK , Myersglanis   ZBK , and Parachiloglanis   ZBK by having an interrupted post-labial groove (Table 5). Euchiloglanis   ZBK is distinguished from Pareuchiloglanis   ZBK by having a crescent-shaped tooth patch in the upper jaw. i.e., a band that curves posteriorly at the sides (vs. not curved posteriorly). It is distinguished from Glyptosternon   ZBK by having the gill openings not extending onto the venter, and from Glaridoglanis   ZBK by having small pointed teeth in both jaws (vs. strong, distally flattened teeth).

Description: Dorsal fin with 7 rays; pectoral fin with 12-14 branched rays; 6 pelvicfin rays; 6 anal-fin rays. Head depressed; snout broadly rounded; body elongate, flattened ventrally to pelvic fins. Eyes small, dorsal, subcutaneous. Lips thick, fleshy, papillated. Post-labial groove broadly interrupted at middle. Upper jaw teeth pointed, tooth patches in upper jaw joined into cresent-shaped band. Maxillary barbel with well-developed membrane, soft base, striated pad of adhesive skin. Gill openings narrow, not extending below pectoral-fin base. Branchiostegal membranes confluent with isthmus. Coracoid process not externally visible. No thoracic adhesive apparatus. Paired fins plaited to form an adhesive apparatus.

Distribution: Yangtze drainage, China (Chu, 1981; He, 1995; Fu et. al., 2003).
