The Tibetan stone loach (Triplophysa stolickai) is a species of ray-finned fish in the family Nemacheilidae. The specific name is sometimes spelled stoliczkae but the original spelling used by Steindachner is stoličkai. [2] It is found in southern and central Asia. [3]

Etymology

The stone loach is named in honor of paleontologist Ferdinand Stoliczka (1838-1874). Stoliczka was the one who collected the type specimen. [4]

Schistura melarancia is a species of ray-finned fish, a stone loach, in the genus Schistura. It is found in the Mekong drainage in Laos and Vietnam. The specific name melarancia is derived from an old Italian word for an orange and refers to the orange-brown colour of the fins and body of this species.

Oreonectes retrodorsalis is a species of stone loach. This cavefish is found only in Guangxi in China. Some authorities places this species in the genus Yunnanilus rather than Oreonectes. The specific name is a compound of the Latin words retro meaning back or past and dorsalis meaning "the back", referring to the placement of the dorsal fin closer to base of the caudal fin than to the tip of snout.

Oxynoemacheilus theophilii is a species of stone loach native to Turkey and the island of Lesbos in Greece. This species occurs in streams and reaches a length of 6.6 centimetres (2.6 in) SL. It is found in the Büyük Menderes River and other streams in western Anatolia, Turkey, and the Evergetoulas Stream on the island of Lesbos, Greece. It can be found in the upper reaches of streams with clear, cold, flowing water where it hides among the stones of the stream bed. The stomach contents of a single female were found to consist of aquatic insect larvae. Water abstraction and the increased droughts caused by climate change are the main threats.

<i>Triplophysa bleekeri</i> Species of fish

Triplophysa bleekeri is a species of stone loach in the genus Triplophysa. It is endemic to China. It grows to 8.2 cm (3.2 in) TL. Having a wide distribution across the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, it lives in fast-flowing rivers from 200 to 3,000m in altitude. Being an unusual species inhabiting high-altitude regions, it is an excellent model to investigate the genetic mechanisms of adaptation to the local environment. With this in mind a chromosomal-scale genome assembly was sequenced and assembled with a genome size of ∼628 Mb. This data finding that the Triplophysa genus likely diverged when the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau elevated by >4,000 m roughly 40 million years ago.
