The body looks Schistura-ish to me, but I can't see anything on the website that looks like it. Very, very cool looking though...we should call them dirty loaches.

- awesome!

S. Robertsi and Schultzi both have truncate caudal fins (as do a few other schistura spp.), so it could be a color form of one of those.

Seriouslyfish has more detail on specific morphology. Really cool looking fish at any rate.
Currently keeping: gastromyzon spp., hypergastromyzon humilis, pseudogastromyzon sp., sewellia spp., ambastaia sidthimunki, homaloptera spp., serpenticobitis octozona, Yaoshania pachychilus. As well as various catfish, loricarids, livebearers and tetras.
