Identification to species level follows Eigenmann and Eigenmann (1890) based on the following characters: adipose fin long; top of head covered with skin; upper jaw slightly prognathous; and barbels broad and long with broad membranaceous border on the posterior margins.

One individual was caught by gill net, but was not vouchered or photographed.
