The sisorid catfish genus Bagarius, hitherto considered monotypic, comprises three species: the small, mainly entomophagous B. bagarius (Hamilton-Buchanan), inhabiting the Ganges, Chao Phrya and Mekong basins; the giant carcinophagous and ichthyophagous B. yarrelli Sykes, widely distributed in South and Southeast Asia including southern India, the Ganges, Thailand, Laos, northern and southern Vietnam, Sumatra, Borneo and Java; and the relatively rare, large, ichthyophagous B. suchus new species, known only from the Mekong basin in Laos and Thailand.
