Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society 101(1): 130-137



This paper gives the diagnostic characters of ten species and detailed description of two new species of the genus Puntius Hamilton-Buchanan from Manipur. P javanicus and P stoliczkanus are recorded for the first time from the state. P ornatus sp. nov. differs from P phutunio in banding pattern (a single dark transverse band at the 18th-20th lateral line scale around caudal peduncle vs. four dark bands on body). P bizonatus sp. nov. also differs from P phutunio in body form and banding pattern (two dark transverse bands vs. four on the body). A key to the species of Puntius of Manipur is provided.
