      • Nomenclatoral acts: Confirmation of synonymy of Varicorhinus with Labeobarbus. Species formerly attributed as belonging to the genus Labeobarbus, but attributed to it in error, now placed in Enteromius: Barbus anema Boulenger, 1903; Barbus arambourgi Pellegrin, 1935; Barbus kerstenii Peters, 1868; Barbus neglectus Boulenger, 1903; Barbus stigmatopygus Boulenger, 1903; and Barbus werneri Boulenger, 1905 (actually a junior synonym of B. stigmatopygus). Synonymy of Labeobarbus altidorsalis (Boulenger, 1908) with Labeobarbus codringtonii (Boulenger, 1908), and not with Labeobarbus marequensis (Smith 1841) as presently mentioned in CoF. Synonymy of Labeobarbus elephantis (Boulenger, 1907) with Labeobarbus polylepis (Boulenger, 1907), and not with Labeobarbus marequensis (Smith 1841) as presently mentioned in CoF. Barbus urotaenia Boulenger, 1913, was revealed to be a Labeobarbus species. Confirmation of the hybrid status of the nominal species Labeobarbus alluaudi (Pellegrin, 1909), Labeobarbus microbarbis (David & Poll, 1937), and Labeobarbus microterolepis (Boulenger, 1902). Neotype designation for Labeobarbus beso (Rüppell, 1835). Lectotype designation for Labeobarbus sandersi (Boulenger, 1912). Lectotype designation for Labeobarbus latirostris Keilhack, 1908. Labeobarbus latirostris Keilhack, 1908 becomes a valid species name. Labeobarbus brevicauda (Keilhack, 1908)becomes a junior synonym of Labeobarbus johnstonii (Boulenger, 1907). Labeobarbus boulengeri is proposed as nomen novum and replacement name for Varicorhinus latirostris Boulenger, 1910. Lectotype designation for Labeobarbus boulengeri Vreven et al., 2016. Labeobarbus matris (Holly, 1928) rejected from synonymy with Varicorhinus mariae Holly, 1929, but the latter now needs a replacement name, which becomes its former jounger synonym, Barbus (now Labeobarbus) rhinoceros Copley, 1938.
