Abstract: The taxonomy of the silurid catfish Ompok leiacanthus (Bleeker, 1853) is clarified. Ompok jaynei Fowler, 1905, previously synonymised under O. leiacanthus, is recognised as a valid species. Specimens from Peninsular Malaysia, southern Thailand and Riau Archipelago, as well as some from parts of Sumatra and Borneo, previously identified as O. leiacanthus, are referred to a new species, O. fumidus. Ompok leiacanthus s. str. and O. jaynei are known only from Sumatra and northern and central Borneo respectively. The three species are separated by differences in the dorsolateral profile, proportions of the head and body, relative lengths of their mental barbels, vertebrae number and colour in life.
