Etymology: Lobocheilos: Latin, lobus = lobe + Greek, cheilos = lip (Ref. 45335).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; demersal. Tropical
Asia: Malay Peninsula, Borneo and Chao Phraya and Mekong basins.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 32.5 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 75626)
soft rays: 8. Differs from congeners from Java, Sumatra and Borneo by having the following unique combination of features: lateral line scales 30-31+3; absence of black blotch on end of caudal peduncle; absence of crescentric mark along posterior edge of scales; 2 barbels, less than eye diameter or absent; pectoral fin extending to or almost to the pelvic-fin origin; pelvic fin extending to anal-fin origin; dorsal-fin tip reaching behind vertical through anal-fin origin, when folded backwards; scale rows between lateral line and dorsal fin origin 5-6½; and curved sheath edge of lower jaw (Ref. 75626).
Juveniles are common in shallow, fast flowing areas with gravel substrate (Ref. 34011).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00554 - 0.01806), b=3.08 (2.93 - 3.23), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.3).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100).
