Abstract

Jerdon (1948, Madras Jour. Litt. and Sci., 15: 305) placed a heterogeneous assemblage of eleven species under the genus Cirrhinus Oken. One of these, Cirrhinus fasciatus, he described from the headwaters of the Cauvery River and from Malabar. Gunther (1868) listed C. fasciatus Jerdon as one of the insufficiently characterized species of Tylognalhus Heckel. Although brief, the description of C. Jasciatus is sufficiently clear to help in assigning the species to its proper systematic position. The writer's extensive collections from Jerdon's type localities have facilitated this task.
