So many additions have been made to the African freshwater fish-fauna during the last few years, over 400 new species having been described by myself, that a full list, with a brief indication of the habitats, seems worthy of publication. This list is intended to serve as a basis for a general account of the distribution of these fishes which I am now preparing for the South African Meeting of the British Association.
Merely estuarine forms are excluded from this list.
