Thank you Ms Marianne... I will conduct a further research. I would appreciate if you could also send the 1953 Herre list. I have a 1937 Manacop list which we both can confirm the endemicity of Pidjanga. Zimm (pidjangaATgmailDOTcom)
Here's her comment:
Please take this suggestion in a constructive way.Post: Zimmbodilion (www.pidjanga.blogspot.com)
I would like to correct the scientific name of pidjanga in Lake Mainit. The white goby or tank goby, Glossogobius giuris is not endemic in the country (you can browse the species information at www.fishbase.com). Pidjanga is a correct local name but the scientific name is questionable. Herre (1953) listed many of the endemic and native species of Lake Mainit. I can post the list of fish species cited by Herre (1953)if I have time.
Regarding janitor fish...
There is a high possibility that the janitor fish from the Agusan Marsh will spread to Lake Mainit. While the janitor fish is not yet spreading to the bountiful lake, I suggest that the concerned LGUs should regularly monitor the fish catch and be strict enough in enforcing ordinances/laws regulating the aquatic resources in the lake.
