Etymology: Arabibarbus: In reference to the geographic range of this genus.; hadhrami: The name of this species is derived from its native range, the Hadhramaut Province in Yemen and was chosen in honour of the people who live there and call themselves 'hadhrami' (Ref. 96964).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic. Tropical
Asia: Wadi Hadhramaut/Wadi al Masila drainage basin in Yemen (Ref. 96964).

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8. Diagnosis: Arabibarbus hadhrami has 29-32 scales in the lateral line, the wedge-shaped head is longer, 27.8-32.5% of standard length, and higher, 15.5-18.4% of standard length, than in its congeners (Ref. 96964). The body is slender and laterally flattened; the dorsal fin is high, 26.5-32.4% of standard length, and well ossified; the pectoral fins, 19.9-23.9% of standard length, and pelvic fins, 16.8-19.9% of standard length, are longer than in its congeners (Ref. 96964).
Its habitat is characterized by high seasonal fluctuations in discharge; during the dry season, many sections of the wadis cease to flow and break up into series of isolated pools, connected by subterranean streams (Ref. 96964).
