Garra simbalbaraensisis reported for the first time from Jammu, India. The species was originally described from the Simbalbara River, Himachal Pradesh, India. It is distinguished from other congeners in having a prominent short, thick, unilobed and rounded proboscis, distinctly projecting downwards above the transverse groove; a black spot at the upper angle of the gill opening and 33 lateral line scales. Species status of G. simbalbaraensis is discussed with morphometry, and its distribution is extended from the Simbalbara River in Himachal Pradesh to the tributary of Tawi River, Jammu, India.
