Nongmaithem Anganthoibi and Waikhom Vishwanath

Abstract:
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.
