Looking to share this project as I am currently on the hunt for as many observations from this genus as possible. I am looking specifically for Indonesian chitala, I have found an incredible specimen that was caught as by-catch from an Indonesian aquarium fish import.
Having it viewed by a few ichthyologists and a handful of fish experts, it is inconclusive what species this is. I have realized the best method to help properly identifying the fish would be comparison to specimens found in nature. iNaturalist is where I come to search for more info. Even observations taken in markets are of much help… ALL OBSERVATIONS NEEDED! For such a little covered genus, I feel a movement is necessary.
