A . Sisorinae Bleeker, 1858
Genera within Sisorinae are easily distinguished from other sisorids by the absence of adhesive organs on the thorax or paired fins. Osteological traits used by de Pinna (1996) to diagnose Sisorinae include distal tip of maxilla pointed (reversed in Sisor ZBK ), epioccipital with slender posterior process (reversed in Sisor ZBK ), and posterodorsal corner of Weberian lamina with pointed process directed posteriorly. Five genera are recognized within Sisorinae . (Table 4).
