namlenensis, Crossocheilus Nguyen [V. H.] & Doan [L. H.] 1969:11, Fig. 5 in ref. 29795 [Some data on composition, origin, and distribution of cyprinid species in northern Vietnam; ref. 25483] Laokay Province, Vietnam [original: Nam Len [stream], Tuan Giao [a city and district], Lai Chau Province, Vietnam]. Neotype: MNHN 1935-0338. Syntypes: (3) lost. See Kottelat 2001:113, 118 for availability issues. Spelled several ways originally, and Kottelat 2001:118 [ref. 25483] as first reviser selected namlenensis. See Nguyen & Doan 2008 [ref. 29793] for an English translation of ref. 25483. Neotype designated by Roberts & Catania 2008:90 [ref. 29794] -- termed invalid by Kottelat 2013; and he says neotype seems to be Spinibarbus vittatus. New lectotype selected by Kottelat 2013. •Questionably valid as Crossocheilus namlenensis Nguyen & Doan 1969 -- (Kottelat 2001:21 [ref. 25482]). •Clearly a Neolissochilus and probably a synonym of N. benasi (Pellegrin & Chevey 1936) -- (Roberts & Catania 2008:94 [ref. 29794]). •Synonym of Neolissochilus benasi Nguyen & Doan 1969 -- (Kottelat 2013:126 [ref. 32989]). Current status: Synonym of Neolissochilus benasi (Pellegrin & Chevey 1936). Cyprinidae: Torinae. Distribution: Vietnam. Habitat: freshwater.
