Bagrus

Bagrus is a genus of bagrid catfishes. Its present scientific name was first proposed by Louis Augustin Guillaume Bosc in 1816 for the Bayad and its closest relatives. Although in 1809, Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire had already separated this fish in his new genus Porcus. But this was overruled by the ICZN, so that the junior synonym could continue to be used.[1]

Species[edit]

Eleven living species are placed here:[2]

A possible fossil Bagrus from about 7 million years ago, found in Late Miocene Baynunah Formation[3] rocks near Ruwais (Abu Dhabi), has been described:[1]

  • Bagrus shuwaiensis Forey & Young, 1999

However, it is not quite clear whether it belongs in Bagrus or some other Bagridae genus, or even in the Claroteidae.[1]
