( HORA bagridae)
Horabagridae is a proposed family of catfishes containing
three genera, Horabagrus, Pachypterus,
and Pseudeutropius. Horobagrus has
been more usually assigned to the family Bagridae
and sometimes it has been suggested it is closer to
the Schilbeidae which is where the other two genera
have been more conventionally placed.
A molecular phylogenetic study by Sullivan et al.
(2006, Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution) indicates
a close relationship between Horabagrus and
Pseudeutropius, and these together are recovered
as the sistergroup to Bagridae sensu Mo (1991 Theses
Zoologicae, 17, Koeltz, Koenigstein).
