Members of the genus Pseudolaguvia are small
erethistid catfishes inhabiting hill streams and large
rivers in the area bordered by the Ganges River drainage
(northern India) to the west and the Sittang River
drainage (east-central Myanmar) to the east.Description:
Pseudolaguvia flavida is distinguished from congeners
in having a combination of a serrated front edge of
the dorsal spine, body depth at anus 11.0% standard
length, length of adipose-fin base 11.0% standard
length, dorsal to adipose distance 16.3% standard
length, caudal peduncle depth 6.5% standard length,
and snout length 43% head length.. Remarks:
Ferraris (2007) stated that the Erethistidae be moved
back into the Sisoridae family and depending on what
literature you have accessed, be it books or the internet,
there are conflicting views on what family it belongs
to, Erethistidae or Sisoridae. In Eschmeyer's Catalog
of Fishes the current name is valid and it is placed
in the Sisoridae family.
