Identification: The body relatively stout. The mouth is terminal; the tip of the snout is not in front of the lower jaw, or only slightly in front of the lower jaw. There is a space between the anterior nostril and the base of the nasal barbel that is about equal to the diameter of the anterior nostril. The anterior and posterior nostrils are relatively small (with a diameter less than that of the eye), and the anterior nostril is located at the end of a short tube. The caudal fin is emarginate or truncate. This species reaches 33.6 mm in standard length.
