It is shown that Puntius melanampyx singhala (Duncker, 1911) is identical to juvenile stages of P. filamentosus (Val., in Cuv. & Val., 1844). The taxonomic relationship between the latter species and P. melanampyx (Day, 1865) is briefly discussed. The argument of the present paper is not influenced if the generic name Barbus is adhered to instead of Puntius. Synonymy Barbus singhala Duncker, 1911: 263. Puntius singhala; Deraniyagala, 1930: 11. Puntius melanampyx singhala; Deraniyagala, 1949: 17. Puntius melanampyx sinhala; Deraniyagala, 1949: 4; 1952: 33; Munro, 1955: 43. Puntius filamentosus (Val., in Cuv. & Val., 1844).
