Distribution: Ganges drainage, India (Ng, 2005a).

Remarks: Has been reported from the Brahmaputra drainage in India (Mamnur Rashid et al., 1997) and also from the Ganges drainage in Bangladesh and Nepal (Lipton, 1985; Datta Munshi & Srivastava, 1988 (in part); Talwar & Jhingran, 1991 (in part); Sen, 1995 (in part); Jayaram, 1999 (in part); Menon, 1999 (in part)). It is uncertain whether these reports are based on G. telchitta or G. botius . Ng (2005a) only examined specimens from the Hooghly River, India. All reports of this species from the Indus drainage are referable to G. sufii ZBK .
