A morphometric and biochemicaI genetic comparison of Barbus aeneus and B. kimberleyensis with B. cf. kimberleyensis from Hardap Dam, SWA/Namibia, revealed that the latter population showed distinct evidence of hybridization between B. aeneus and B. kimberleyensis. A similar comparison of the three Labeo-populations from Hardap Dam alsa indicated hybridization between L. capensis and L. umbratus.
