Tumirostris (Nichols 1928). Yang (1964) recognized both of them as species of Distoechodon. Bănărescu (1970) synonymized X. compressus with X. tumirostris, but retained it as a subspecies. Lian (1984) followed Yang (1964), recognizing D. compressus as a valid species. Liu and He (1998) synonymized D. compressus with D. tumirostris, based on the fact that the number of lateral-line scales and gill rakers among populations of Distoechodon are overlapping. Shan (1998) described differences between D.

Biol. ) 15(6): 400 (Ningpo) Diagnosis Distoechodon tumirostris can be distinguished from all other congeners by having a combination of the following characters: lateral-line scales 68–77, modally 73; predorsal scales 30–36, mostly 33 (Fig. 08% in SL). Similar to D. compressus in lateral-line scale count, but is different from it by having more predorsal scales (30–36 vs.

The evidence from molecular systematics work shows that D. hupeinensis is closely related to X. argentea and X. davidi, but is distant from the species of Distoechodon (Xiao et al 2001). Even the study of the related parasite fauna also supports this viewpoint (Xiao & Wang 2000). After removing Distoechodon hupeinensis, four species can now be recognized in the genus Distoechodon. Bănărescu (1970) used the number of gill rakers and lateral-line scales to distinguish them. Our study, Reprinted from the journal however, shows no particular variation in the gill-raker count among the different species.
