OT-help with catfish ID

Any catfish lovers here? My daughter is setting up her 26g bowfront that she won in the TFH young hobbyist contest and she is the proud owner of a lovely spotted catfish, but we don't know precisely what type. It's certainly a synodontis (we think ;-) possibly a Synodontis schoutedeni but any help or pointers to a good catfish site would be appreciated.

Very handsome buttery yellow base with a leopard type chocolate spotting except under the head. 3 sets of barbels. One long slim upper pair. Two pair of feathered lower ones. Round large head tapering to a chubby belly and slimmer caudal. Loves rocks, lays around in the daytime upside down and travels all over in the dark hours inves
