Hemigrammocypris neglectus (Stieler, 1907)senior synonym[1]

Hemigrammocypris rasborella, the golden venus chub,[2] is a species of cyprinid fish endemic to the islands of Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu in Japan.[3] It is found widely in lowland habitats, including ditches and ponds.[4] It is listed as endangered on the Japanese Red List.[5] H. rasborella is the only species in its genus, but there are significant genetic differences between some populations, comparable to those generally seen between closely related species.[6] It reaches up to 7 cm (2.8 in) in length, but typically is 4–5 cm (1.6–2.0 in).[7] It is a short-lived species that typically reaches an age of about one year.[4]
