Miscellaneous Details

"Taxonomic Notes: Labeo porcellus was originally described as Tylognathus porcellus by Heckel (1844) from Bombay presidency (this should not be treated as Bombay, now Mumbai, since at that time even Pune and Nashik were also in Bombay presidency). Beavan (1877) changed the generic status of the fish to Labeo. Synonymy of Labeo porcellus lankae with Labeo porcellus needs to be confirmed (Menon 1999)."
