New (?) Botia Species in Las Vegas

I just saw a new (to me) species of Botia at my LFS. Body shape is identical to a Yo-Yo. Background color is a dark olive green, with a very regular pattern of large and small yellow spots, in rows and columns of small, and rows and collumns of large.

This was a very handsome loach, and priced accordingly; US$18 per copy for 2-inch juveniles! They were labelled, "Marble Botia." I saw them at 2 stores, Petco, and Green Valley Aquarium (nicest and most expensive in Las Vegas).
