ปลาค้างคาวคุณสืบ Oreoglanis nakasathieni Vidthayanon, Saenjundaeng & Ng, 2009
 ปลาเฉพาะถิ่นของลุ่มน้ำแม่แตง พบในเขตรักษาพันธุ์สัตว์ป่าดอยเชียงดาวและใกล้เคียงเท่านั้น
ตั้งชื่อเพื่อเป็นเกียรติแก่ สืบ นาคะเสถียร (พ.ศ. 2492 - 2533)

"In honor to the late Mr. Seub Nakasathian (1949 - 1990), the Thai wildlife biologist who devoted his life for wildlife research and awareness rising on conservation and management of Thai Western Forest Complex."


We describe eight new species of the sisorid catfish genus Oreoglanis from the Chao Phraya, Mekong and Salween river drainages in northern and western Thailand. The new species are diagnosed by a combination of morphology of maxillary-barbel tip, lower-lip morphology, extent of pectoral fin, fusion of the adipose fin with the upper procurrent caudal-fin rays, caudal-fin morphology, and the relative proportions of the head, snout, nasal barbel, interorbital distance, eye, body depth at anus, adipose fin, caudal peduncle and post-adipose distance. The taxonomy of O. pumatensis, a poorly known species from Vietnam is also discussed; it is considered a junior subjective synonym of O. infulatus here.
