Loach ID needed

I'm trying to ID a new loach I just added to my menagerie, and a picture will probably be impossible. These are some seriously shy loaches. They look like botias, very similar to the hymenophysa in the loach cataloge . . . with very pointy noses, thin brown stripes on a very light background, no spots, the dorsal fin has a triangle-shaped marking of brown bars on the clear, light red colored fin. This red color is not repeated in the tail.

Any thoughts?
