[[ Genus Labeo Rueppell  ]]

Cyprinid fishes of the genus Labeo  have been divided into two groups on the basis of the anatomy of the inner surface of their lips which are either papillate or plicate (Tshibwabwa & Teugels, 1995). In the lower Congo region (from Pool Malebo to the Atlantic Ocean, see Thieme et al., 2005), the first group is represented by 3 species: Labeo lineatus Boulenger, 1898  ZBK  , L. weeksii Boulenger, 1909  ZBK  , and L. maleboensis Tshibwabwa, 1997  ZBK  , and the second group is represented by 13 species: L. annectens Boulenger, 1903  ZBK  , L. barbatus Boulenger, 1898  ZBK  , L. chariensis Pellegrin, 1904  ZBK  , L. cyclorhynchus Boulenger, 1899  ZBK  , L. degeni Boulenger, 1920  ZBK  , L. falcipinnis Boulenger, 1903  ZBK  , L. greenii Boulenger, 1902  ZBK  , L. longipinnis Boulenger, 1898  ZBK  , L. macrostomus Boulenger, 1898  , L. nasus Boulenger, 1899  ZBK  , L. parvus Boulenger, 1902  ZBK  , L. rectipinnis Tshibwabwa, 1997  ZBK  , and L. sorex Nichols and Griscom, 1917  ZBK  (Tshibwabwa & Teugels, 1995; Tshibwabwa, 1997).
