Contributions to the study of bagrid fishes 14. The systematic position of the species ofMystus Scopoli known from China
Bagrid catfishes of the genusMystus Scopoli are dominant in India and the East Indies and are rare in China. Eight nominal specieshave been reported as occurring in. China and referred to asMystus, Aoria orMacrones and their synonyms. Based on examination of type material it has been shown that with two exceptions all should be retained withinMystus. The two exceptions,Aorta cornula Chu (misprint forA. corsula (Hamilton)) is of doubtful occurrence in China andMacrones sinensis Bleeker belongs to the family Cranoglanididae.
