  Comment: According to Eschmeyer (online Catalog of Fishes, 2005), Oreias Sauvage 1874 is "Apparently preoccupied by Oreias Kaup 1829 and Oreias Temminck 1839 in Aves; research needed." If species attributed to this genus are thought to be separate from Schistura McClelland 1838 then a replacement name would be needed
