Physoschistura raoi Hora, 1929

 

 

Taxonomy & Nomenclature

Synonym/s: Nemachilus raoe Hora, 1929 (original combination); Schistura raoi (Hora, 1929)

 

Conservation Status

Last record: 1929 or before

IUCN RedList status: Data Deficient

 

Only known from the type series (Vishwanath, 2010). No further records of this species have been made and it may therefore be extinct. A possible record exists from Yunnan, China (Kottelat, 1990 cited in Vishwanath, 2010) which should be investigated as the species' distribution may encompass an area much larger than the type locality.
