Abstract

The fish survey of the Cauvery River and its tributary streams undertaken by me during March-April 1951 , May 1953, and October 1954 has facilitated the clarification of the nomenclatorial status of many of the species described by Jerdon in his treatise on the 'Freshwater Fishes of Southern India', published in 1849. The bulk of his material came from the Cauvery watershed and he described a number of new species, the status or systematic position of many of which has hitherto remained uncertain.
