AKYSIDAE Gill, 1861  

Akyses Gill, 1861c: 52. Type genus: Akysis Bleeker, 1858   .

Parakysidae Roberts, 1989a: 141   . Type genus: Parakysis Herre, 1940   .

Acrochordonichthyini de Pinna, 1996: 61. Type genus: Acrochordonichthys Bleeker, 1857   .

Monophyly and phylogenetic position: de Pinna (1996).

Identification guide: Jayaram (1977d), South Asia.

5 genera, 47 species; no named fossil taxa.

ACROCHORDONICHTHYS Bleeker, 1857  

Acrochordonichthys Bleeker, 1857b: 473   . Type species: Pimelodus melanogaster Bleeker, 1854   . Type by present designation. Gender: Masculine.

Sosia Vaillant, 1902: 81   . Type species: Sosia chamaeleon Vaillant, 1902   . Type by monotypy. Gender: Feminine.

Remarks: Earlier statements (e. g., Eschmeyer, 1990, 1998; Ng & Ng, 2001) indicating that the type of Acrochordonichthys   as A. platycephalus Bleeker, 1858   , are in error. They were based on a type designation in Bleeker (1862-63) which was of a species that was not among the available named species when Acrochordonichthys   was proposed. Apparently, no valid designation of a type species have been made before now.
