been found in the Kobiwako Group in Mie and
Shiga prefectures. The Pliocene cyprinid fauna is
different from the present fauna in Japan and
similar to the Miocene fauna in Japan and the
Pliocene and present ones in China at the genus
level (Nakajima 1986). Pleistocene freshwater
fishes found from Kusu Basin in Oita Prefecture
consist of extant freshwater species occurring in
Japan (Uyeno et al. 197513; Yabumoto 198713).
