[[ Pseudecheneis Blyth, 1860   ZBK   ]]

Sisorid catfishes of the genus Pseudecheneis Blyth, 1860   ZBK   , are diagnosed by a thoracic adhesive apparatus consisting of a series of transverse ridges (laminae) separated by grooves (sulcae) (de Pinna, 1996; Roberts, 1998), and are found in the upper reaches of rivers throughout the Subhimalayan and Indochinese region. Recent studies (Ng & Edds, 2005; Ng, 2006a; Ng, 2006b) recognize eleven valid species of Pseudecheneis   ZBK   : P. sulcata (M'Clelland, 1842)   ; P. paviei Vaillant, 1904   ZBK   ; P. tchangi (Hora, 1937)   ZBK   ; P. immaculata Chu, 1982   ; P. sulcatoides Zhou & Chu, 1992   ZBK   ; P. sympelvica Roberts, 1998   ; P. crassicauda Ng & Edds, 2005   ZBK   ; P. serracula Ng & Edds, 2005   ZBK   ; P. eddsi Ng, 2006   ; P. stenura Ng, 2006   ; and P. suppaetula Ng, 2006   .
