Te-Yu Liao, Sven O. Kullander, and Hung-Du Lin (2011) Synonymization of Pararasbora, Yaoshanicus, and Nicholsicypris with Aphyocypris, and description of a new species of Aphyocypris from Taiwan (Teleostei: Cyprinidae). Zoological Studies 50(5): 657-664. The genus Aphyocypris is a group of small fish distributed in East Asia. Aphyocypris amnis sp. nov. is characterized by the lateral line turning upward at a vertical from the posterior end of the anal-fin base, 3 scales between the lateral line and posterior end of the anal-fin base, and the last 5-7 scales of the lateral line running along the midline of the caudal peduncle. A ventral keel is present between the pelvic-fin base and anus. Aphyocypris amnis sp. nov. is found only in the Shuili River, a tributary of the Choshui River in central Taiwan. Pararasbora Regan, 1908, Yaoshanicus Lin, 1931, and Nicholsicypris Chu, 1935 are synonyms of Aphyocypris Gunther, 1868. http://zoolstud.sinica.edu.tw/Journals/50.5/657.pdf
