Preliminary Observations on the Relationships of Barbus Species From Cape Coastal Rivers, South Africa (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae)

  • PH Skelton

Abstract

Observations on the phylogenetic relationships of Barbus species from the southern Cape Province are made in the light of new data on the post-cranial axial skeleton and other osteological and anatomical features. Particular attention is paid to the relationships of the ‘red fin’ Barbus species, and new evidence on the problematical relationships of the rare African cyprinid species Oreodaimon quathlambae, is presented.
