The species is described as a species of Chagunius with body elongated depth more than its head; mouth narrow and subterminal, barbels 2 pairs, longer than orbit; dorsal spine osseous, strong and recurved, its length is rather more than that of head, excluding the mouth; dorsal fin commences midway between the end of the snout and the base of caudal fin; scales small; lateral line complete and lateral line with 46 scales. Chagunius chagunio is described as a new record based on these collected specimens.
