Max length : 5.5 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 7050)
Differs from all of its congeners by the following combination of characters: lateral line incomplete to absent, perforating 0-6 scales; 29-32 scales along normal course of lateral line; a conspicuous black (bluish black in life) lateral stripe from tip of snout to extremity of median caudal rays; body slender, its depth 4.4-4.8 times in SL (4.0-5.1); caudal peduncle slender than all other Rasbora, its depth 2.3-2.8 times in its length (2.3-3.3); and long and pointed dorsal and anal fins (Ref. 26753).
Common in forest streams and clear black water (Ref. 56749). Maximum length 15 cm TL in Ref. 2060.
