Abstract: Rasbora cryptica, new species, is described from Borneo in southern Sarawak (Malaysia). It is distinguished from all other species of the genus by a unique colour pattern consisting of a bold black longitudinally elongated blotch, made of a layer of deep pigment, appearing as a ventrad widening of the axial streak, on which the midlateral stripe is overimposed; the blotch extends from about midway between the pectoral- and pelvic-fin bases, until the middle of the dorsal-fin base. On the caudal peduncle, there is an elongate triangular blotch, with the apex pointed forwards, not extending onto the caudal fin. Rasbora cryptica was earlier misidentified as R. volzii fasciata, which is a synonym of R. volzii. A lectotype is designated for R. volzii. © 2012 by Verlag Dr. Friedrich Pfeil, München, Germany.
