Recently having had occasion to consider the nomenclatorial status of certain genera and species of freshwater fishes from India, it was found that the generic status and composition of Chela, the first division named by Hamilton (1822)1 under the composite genus Cyprinus, was in confusion. Smith (1945) made a partial attempt to straighten .the tangle, but writers seem still to adhere to earlier systems of classification, partly on account of Smith's work not being accessible as ready reference.
