Diagnosis

Perhaps the smallest of the Cirrhinus; readily distinguished by its small head, short blunt snout, very deep caudal peduncle, and usually having the pectoral, pelvic, anal, but not the caudal fin red, reddish-orange, or at least rose-tinted; the pelvic and anal fins often tipped with white; barbels absent. In all other species of Cirrhinus the pectoral fins are colorless, dusky, or at most pale pink or rose-tinted (Ref. 33488).
