Abstract: Mystus cineraceus, new species, is described from the Irrawaddy River drainage in northern Myanmar. It is distinguished from congeners in having a unique combination of a long-based adipose fin (40.9-45.9% SL) that contacts the base of the last dorsal-fin ray anteriorly, a color pattern consisting of a uniform brownish-gray body with a diffuse dark midlateral line and a diffusely dark tympanic region (very indistinct in some individuals), 13-15 rakers on the first gill arch, dorsal-fin spine length 10.9-13.4% SL, body depth at anus 20.7-23.4% SL, head length 24.1-27.2% SL, maxillary barbel reaching to middle of anal-fin base (247.4-345.0% HL), absence of a black spot at the base of the dorsal-fin spine and at the base of the caudal fin, and cranial fontanel reaching the base of the supraoccipital spine. The issues surrounding the identification of M. bleekeri, a species from India similar to M. cineraceus, are also discussed. © 2009 by the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists.
