Etymology: Labiobarbus: Latin, labium = lip + Latin, barbus = barbel (Ref. 45335).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic. Tropical
Asia: known only from the type locality, the Kinabatangan and Segama river basins in Sabah, northeastern Borneo, Malaysia.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 22.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 34011)
Vertebrae: 35 - 36. Distinguished from all other species of Labiobarbus by having only 18-22 branched dorsal rays (versus 22 or more), a very thick head and body, and a very steep dorsal profile, concave at the nape. Maxillary barbel very long, extending posteriorly well beyond eye (Ref. 7424).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5020 [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
): 2.4 ±0.1 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
): Moderate vulnerability (38 of 100) .
