Main Ref. Lim, P., S. Lek, S.T. Touch, S.-O. Mao and B. Chhouk, 1999
Remarks Persistent dry-season inhabitant of deep-water pools in the Mekong River in southern Laos and northeastern Cambodia. Appears to be rather sedentary in the river, wothout any known migrations or movements into tributaries (Ref. 43946). Spawns in deep-water sections of the Mekong River in southern Laos and northeastern Cambodia during the height of the dry-season, between March and May (Ref. 53062).
