One for (Sino)Botia Fans *PIC*

Been speculating on this fish picture posted by Choy Heng Wah on the Singapore Petfrd.com Forum.

Speculation is Sinobotia superciliaris, but my point that it is extremely similar to Sinobotia robusta has been seriously considered. However, IMO the striping is very atypical for S. robusta, particularly those cheek bars. Any input, ideas, etc would be useful.

Within the thread, I've posted that guilinensis/pulchra/superciliaris composite picture that I posted here a while ago, inviting opinions from the various knowledgeable people who frequent the Petfrd.com forum.
