New loach latin names?

There is some information on the website of Practical Fishkeeping magazine that states quite a few loaches from the Botia family have undergone name changes. For example Clown Loach are now Chromobotia Macracantha and Botia Sidthimunki are now Yasuhikotakia Sidthimunki, amongst others. Was anyone else aware of this?
