Question on Botia Morleti

I have a question concerning the Botia Morleti found in "Dr. Axelrods Atlas of Freshwater Aquarium Fish Ninth Edition". On page 896. The first picture of it is the fish but with black stripes on it. I used to think that this fish is Botia Eos, but it said that it was Botia Morleti. I have 2 of these fish. I then was looking through one of my loach books to find out if it was a Horas loach or an Eos loach. When I finally found the picture in the book called " Aquarium Fish of the World Comprehensive Guide to 650 Species" it said that this fish is unknown. Thanks, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
