Africa: Lake Tana and Baro River (Ref. 31508, 58460). Specimens reported from Gojeb River, tributary of the Omo River (Ref. 31508, 58460), have been reidentified as Afronemacheilus kaffa (Ref. 94278).

Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 0; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 10-14; Taggstrålar i analfenan 0; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 9 - 12; Ryggkotor: 35 - 37. Diagnosis: Afronemacheilus abyssinicus is distinguished from its congener A. kaffa by having usually 8 or 9 branched dorsal-fin rays (vs. usually 7); the anterior and posterior nares closely spaced (vs. well separated); the intestine straight (vs. with a single small loop), no contact between sphenotic and epiotic (vs. usually in contact); two pairs of pharyngobranchials and usually three basibranchials (vs. three and four, respectively); the dark spots on flank small and irregular becoming larger and transversely extended on dorsum (Ref. 94278).
