|Cat-eLog Data Sheet|
|Scientific Name||Ompok supernus Ng, 2008|
|Type Locality||Rungan River drainage in the viciniy of Tangkiling, Kalimantan Tengah, Borneo, Indonesia.|
|Etymology||The etymology of Ompok is unclear. It is believed to be a corruption of the Indonesian name for mid-sized silurid catfishes, limpok.|
|Identification||The catfish genus Ompok La Cepède, 1803, consists of medium-sized silurid fishes found in inland waters throughout South and Southeast Asia. The genus is traditionally diagnosed by the presence of a short dorsal fin with 4 rays, strongly forked caudal fin, subcutaneous eye that is set immediately posterior to the mouth rictus and two patches of palatal teeth (Weber & de Beaufort, 1913). Bornbusch (1995) showed that Ompok, as currently understood, is probably paraphyletic.|
