This is the type species. Does anyone know how it got to be so? Was it because it was the first species of the genus discovered? Or, do they personify the genus best?
Thanks

As far as I know this was the first species described in 1822 at which time they were placed in the genus Cyprinus. It wasn't until 1859 that Bleeker created the genus Rasbora so I presume that the first species was named Rasbora rasbora for the reason that is was the first species of the genus to be described.
