soft rays: 8. Differs from its congeners in Indochina by the combination o the following characters: body with 6-11 dark bars, regularly shaped and set; black bar at caudal fin base complete, without triangular pads at each extremity; small median incision in upper lip; incomplete lateral line reaching between dorsal fin base and anal fin base; processus dentiformis slender; axillary pelvic lobe not reduced and pelvic fin origin slightly anterior to dorsal fin origin or below simple dorsal fin rays (Ref. 40772).
Asia: stream Mong Mo in Viet Nam.

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00537 (0.00237 - 0.01216), b=3.07 (2.87 - 3.27), based on LWR estimates for this Family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.1 ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
