Morphology | Morphometrics
Crossocheilus tchangi is diagnosed from all other congengers by the following combination of characters: edge of upper lip smooth; lower lip rectangular in shape, width greater than length; maxillary barbels, if present, tiny, hidden in corner of mouth; black midlateral stripe present only on posterior 1 =3 of body, terminating in distinct horizontally elongated spot on caudal peduncle, not
on caudal-fin rays (Ref. 116015).
