A new species of Puntius Hamilton (Pisces: Cyprinidae) from Kalakad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve, Tamil Nadu, India



Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society 99(3): 474-480



Kalakad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve (KMTR) is an important forest reserve for the origin of all the streams and rivers of the Tamiraparani system. Various streams and rivers of Tamiraparani river basin harbour several endangered and endemic fishes. Here we report a new species of the genus Puntius Hamilton from the Kannikatti region of KMTR. It was collected from the headwater streams of Tamiraparani river. Puntius kannikattiensis sp. nov. differs from the closely related species Puntius fasciatus in its morphometric characters and body colour pattern.
