Akysis leucorhynchus Fowler 1934

Identification: The body is relatively elongate. The mouth is subterminal; the tip of the snout is well in front of the lower jaw. The nostrils are close together and separated only by the nasal barbel. The anterior nostril is on the surface of the snout, not at the tip of a short tube (except A. fuscus). The caudal fin is strongly forked (except A. leucorhynchus). This species reaches 30.2 mm in standard length.
