soft rays: 8. Distinguished from Acrossocheilus (Lissochilichthys) labiatus by the presence of black blotches along the back, three before and one behind the dorsal fin, and having longer maxillary barbel, 1.97 times as long as the eye; and from Acrossocheilus (Lissochilichthys) wenchowensis beijiangensis in having no clear serrate on the last dorsal spine (Ref. 85683).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00977 (0.00372 - 0.02567), b=3.01 (2.78 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 2.9 ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100) .
