<i>Triplophysa</i> Genus of fishes

Triplophysa is a genus of fish in the family Nemacheilidae found mainly in and around the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in China. Currently, the genus is a mixed assemblage of species. Some lineages have been identified and treated as subgenera, but as Wikipedia follows Fishbase for fish species all but Hedinichthys have been treated as subgenera in Wikipedia, although Kottelat in his revision of the loaches did recognise them as valid. FishBase, however, includes these in Triplophysa without specifying subgenera and treats the names given by Kottelat as synonyms.

<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.

Triplophysa gracilis is a species of stone loach in the genus Triplophysa. It is found in Pakistan, India, and China. It grows to 11 cm (4.3 in) SL and lives in standing waters and deeper parts of rivers.

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

Triplophysa intermedia is a species of ray-finned fish in the genus Triplophysa. The species has only been found in Hulun Lake in Inner Mongolia, China; but is believed to appear in other locations as well since fish in this genus are typically found in running water.

Triplophysa longibarbata is a species of ray-finned fish in the genus Triplophysa. This cavefish is only known from Guizhou in China.

Triplophysa marmorata is a species of ray-finned fish found in Asia. It's a scaleless inland fish that is endemic of wetlands like the Wular Lake in Jammu and Kashmir, India. Like similar species T. kashmirensis, it presents a slender caudal peduncle, but it's shorter in the case of T. marmorata. Its specimens can also be differentiated because of their shorter lateral line length. Their diet is composed of detritus, plants that coat rocks and stones, and the associated invertebrate fauna. They reach maturity after two years.

Triplophysa orientalis is a species of stone loach. It is a freshwater fish from the Tibetan Plateau and is endemic to China; its distribution includes the upper reaches of the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers, among others. It lives in a wide range of habitats, both lentic and lotic. The species is widespread but populations tend to be isolated and show high degree of genetic divergence.

Triplophysa stewarti is a species of stone loach in the genus Triplophysa. It lives in slow-flowing rivers and lakes among rocks and vegetation; it is found in numerous lakes and in upper Salween, Indus, and Brahmaputra drainages in Tibet as well as in Kashmir, India. It grows to 20.8 cm (8.2 in) SL.
