Two ichthyologists from an Indian university have described a new species of loach from the rivers of Manipur in India.
The new species, Schistura reticulata, was described by Waikhom Vishwanath and Kongbrailatpam Nebeshwar in the journal Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters and is a member of the Balitoridae family.
The loach was discovered in the Maklang and Lokchao Rivers in Manipur, India.
The paper also redescribes Schistura chindwinica and discusses the identification of these members of the genus.
