Morphometric data as in Table 3.

Diagnosis. – Pseudecheneis paviei   is distinguished from other congeners by the combination of following characters. Thoracic adhesive apparatus with 9–14 transverse ridges (laminae) (vs. 14–20). Snout wide and flat, the ratio of snout width at mouth corner to distance between pectoral fin base larger than 0.75 (vs. smaller than 0.75). Caudal peduncle deeper (depth of caudal peduncle 6.1–9.3% SL and 29.4– 46.7% in length of caudal peduncle vs. 3.3–5.7, 11.5–24.5). Caudal fin with four yellow spots, isolated each other, not connected (vs. connected each other and forming an entire patch, or only one sport at lower lobe isolated) ( Fig. 13 View Fig ). Premaxillary tooth band semicircular and six or eight teeth along its outer edge (vs. two or four) ( Fig. 2C View Fig ). Body covered with dense, rounded tubercles distributed irregularly, not uniformly ( Fig. 4A View Fig ). Tubercles increasing in density gradually from occipital to caudal peduncle. Vertebrae 17+16=33 (1), 17+17=34 (4).

Distribution. – This species is found only in the Honghe (Red

River) drainage ( Fig. 11 View Fig ).

Remarks. – Chu (1982) asked Dr. Greenwood working in the Natural History Museum (London) to examine types of Pseudecheneis paviei   deposited in Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle (Paris). Dr. Greenwood could not find types of P. paviei   . In this study, examined specimens are included some specimens collected from Tengtiaojing of Jinping County in Yunnan, China where is near to the type locality of P. paviei   in Laichou of Vietnam. Meanwhile, all types of P. intermedius   deposited in KIZ had been examined.
