Etymology: Crossocheilus: Greek krossoi = tassel + Greek, cheilos = lip (Ref. 45335); microstoma: Derived from the Greek mikró, meaning small, and stóma, meaning mouth, in reference to the small mouth width of the species.

Morphology | Morphometrics
Crossocheilus microstoma is diagnosed from all its congeners by the following combination
of characters: edge of upper lip with projections; lower lip square in shape, width approximately equal to length; maxillary barbels long, clearly exposed (approximately 1/2 to 2/3 of eye diameter); black midlateral stripe from tip of snout to caudal-fin base, ending in distinct black spot at caudal-fin base; mouth width 18.3-20.0% HL (Ref. 116015)

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00435 - 0.02001), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.5 ±0.2 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (22 of 100) .
