The enigmatic ‘panda loach’, formerly referred to as ‘Protomyzon‘ pachychilus is shown to represent a distinct genus in the latest volume of the journal ‘Zootaxa’.
It’s now known as Yaoshania pachychilus following publication of the new study by Yang et al., the generic name taken from Dayao Mountain (Dayaoshan) in Jinxiu County, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, southern China, where this locally endemic species is known only from a handful of headwater tributary streams.
