Taxonomy of Auchenoglanis Günther 1865 (Siluriformes: Auchenoglanididae)

Michael E. Retzer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Teugels et al. (1991) considered the genus Auchenoglanis to be comprised of two valid species: A. biscutatus and A. occidentalis. A new analysis of all the nominal species and subspecies of the genus supports the recognition of all nominal taxa as species. Each species is diagnosed primarily on mensural characters, size and shape of the premaxillary tooth patches, and pigmentation patterns. In addition, a new species, Auchenoglanis senegali, is described from Senegal.
