Description

Morphometric data are summarised in Table 1a, selected counts in Tables 2–4. General appearance can be seen in Figs 1a and 2a. Body compressed, elongate. Caudal-peduncle depth only slightly less than half maximum body depth; head length greater than maximum body depth. Eye small, its diameter smaller than snout length. Snout fleshy, slightly to markedly projecting beyond upper lip (similar to a feature Kottelat and Freyhof [2007: fig. 39] called the “rostral cap,” which covers all or part of upper lip); snout terminating laterally in prominent crease along anterior edge of first infraorbital. Mouth subterminal, tip of mouth cleft at level of ventral margin of eye or, more frequently, below it. Lower jaw-quadrate junction at vertical through anterior half of eye. Length of lower jaw 10–12% SL or 36–41% HL, or 102–132% depth of operculum.  Morphometric data of Telestes dabar.
