Abstract

On 28 July 1957 while collecting fish from a stream passing through Krishnagiri National Park, Bombay, one of us (E. G. Silao) cam.e across a tiny eel-like fish 84 mm. in length. Subsequently a second specimen was obtained just above the main falls at Kanheri Caves about three miles further up. During the last week of September and early in October of the same year, it was once again possible, assisted by a party from the Natural History Section of the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India, Bombay, to collect several specimens of similar eel-like fishes from a streamlet passing through Robbers' Cave, Mahableshwar, Satara District, and one specimen from an adjacent strearn at Mahableshwar.
