    Scientists have described a new species of hillstream loach from the genus Erromyzon.

    David Neely, Kevin Conway and Richard Mayden discovered the new species while studying preserved specimens at Kunming Institute of Zoology which had been identified as "Protomyzon" pachychilus.

    The species, which is a member of the Balitoridae family and originates from the Pearl River (Zhu Jiang) drainage of the Guangxi Province in China, and has been named Erromyzon yangi in a paper in the latest issue of the journal Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters.
