Silas, E G and Dawson, E (1961) Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch), a new addition to the freshwater fish fauna of the Andaman Islands. Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society, 58 (1). pp. 287-289.
During a recent visit to the Andaman Islands in February-March 1960, we were able to collect, besides other species, 8 specimens of the catfish Heteropneu~tes fo.rsilis (Bloch) measuring from 99 to 245 mm. in standard length from a stream near the forest rest camp about seven miles (c. 11 km.) from Mayabundur, Middle Andamans. Subsequently, ten more specimens of the same species were obtained by us from a local resident of Porl Blair, South Andamans, who had collected them from a nullah at Fararguni, about six miles (c. 9 km.) from Port Blair.
