Etymology: Garra: Name based on a vernacular Indian name (Hamilton, 1822:343, Ref. 1813).; findolabium: From the Latin adjectives findo (split), and labium (lip), in reference to posterior edge of the oral sucking disc with a median fissure and divided it into two lamellas.

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 7. Differs from all other species of the genus Garra in Southeast Asia and China by having the following combination of characters: posterior edge of the oral sucking disc with a median fissure dividing it into two lamellae; an anomalistic dark patch on caudal fin, extending to 50% of caudal fin length; absence of barbels; absence of a proboscis in front of nostrils; lateral line scales 37-38; circumpeduncular scales 16; distance of anus to anal-fin origin about 33.3-38.7% of distance of pelvic-fin origin to anal fin origin (Ref. 75600).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00759 (0.00331 - 0.01740), b=3.05 (2.88 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
