A new torrent catfish species, Liobagrus chengduensis sp. nov., is described from the Xihe River, a tributary of the Minjiang River, Qionglai City, Chengdu City, Sichuan Province, China. It can be distinguished from all other congeneric species by a unique combination of the following characters: 3–4 serrations on posterior edge of pectoral-fin spine; anal fin with 15–16 rays; upper jaw obviously shorter than lower jaw; caudal fin rounded, with 42–44 rays; vertebral column with 36–37 post-Weberian elements; anus close to pelvic-fin insertion; adipose fin posteriorly continuous with caudal fin, with marked incision at confluence; body generally brownish yellow; all fins lacking well-defined light-colored margins, with color fading towards edge
