Nongmaithem Anganthoibi and Waikhom Vishwanath

Two new species of Glyptothorax are described from the Koladyne basin of Mizoram State, India. Glyptothorax ater is distinguished from its congeners by the combination of: rhomboidal thoracic adhesive apparatus with a conspicuous central depression, longitudinally elongated and with a constriction at mid-length; ventral surface of pectoral spine and outer rays of pelvic fins pleated; and two horizontal creamish stripes against dark brown body. Glyptothorax caudimaculatus is distinguished by the combination of: unculiferous ridges of the thoracic adhesive apparatus extending anteriorly onto the gular region; sparsely granulated skin; light yellowish grey body and an
oval blue black band at caudal-fin base.
