Mystery loaches

Last Tues night I received 15 new 'mystery' loaches from my Indian supplier. They had listed them as having a common name of 'Puma loach' and a partial latin description of 'Aborichthys sp. XL - New'. They are quite elongate in appearance and seem to move in a slightly snake-like fashion, bending into slight 'S' shapes when they swim. I'd say these are about 4" long and are fairly chunky.
Let me know if you have any ideas as to what they are!
