Botia dario - need a dorsal ray and barbel count

Can someone give me a dorsal ray count and barbel count for Botia dario - after visiting a specialist shop yesterday and having a very long discussion with the staff we're wokring on the assumption that our killer loach is a rather overgrown B.dario - it's the closest match on body shape and colouration. My loach - now just over 4 inches is dorsal i,10-11 ( it's hard to keep it still long enough to count.) and has 4 pairs of barbels.

Saw some nice plecos in that place - shame I don't hjave 400 quid to spend, Ian
