[[ Ompok Lacepede  ZBK  ]]

The catfish genus Ompok Lacepede, 1803  ZBK  , refers to medium-sized silurid fishes found in inland waters throughout South and Southeast Asia. Bornbusch (1995) showed that Ompok  ZBK  , as currently understood, is probably paraphyletic. However, given the weak support for the monophyly of his clades, the taxonomy of Ompok  ZBK  is not stable enough to reassign any of the existing species to other genera.
