My first ever Kuro-yoshinobori caught in a small stream in northern Fukuoka, Japan, on a live bloodworm. Kuro-yoshinobori which means black-reed-climber is formerly named simply yoshinobori before further classification into several species, and this species succeeded the scientific name. Kuro-yoshinobori is characterized by a black line at the pectoral fin base, distributed in warmer regions of Japan, and grows to around 8 cm.
