Spine dorsali (totale): 1; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 5-6. Diagnosis: labial disk rather small, ovoid, with very large barbels; up to 3 auxiliary mandibular barbels on either side of lower lip; main outer mandibular barbel without lateral auxiliary barbel; mandibular teeth numbering 4+4 to 7+7; adipose fin long, beginning distinctly ahead of anal-fin origin; caudal fin slightly forked, with unequal lobes (lower lobe longer than upper); eyes large; no sexual dimorphism known; caudal peduncle slightly elongate (Ref. 57223). Coloration: no particular colour pattern; similar to that of other Chiloglanis species (Ref. 57223).
