Types

Holotype: KIZ 12070276 87.4mm SL, 107.1mm TL. Paratypes: KIZ 12060239 76.9mm SL, 95.8mm TL, KIZ 12070280 100.3mm SL, 121.5mm TL, KIZ 12070271 78.4mm SL, 95.6mm TL, KIZ 12070277 82.3mm SL, 103.0mm TL.

Distribution

Known only from the type locality: Luolou town, Lingyun County, Guangxi, China. 24°22'12.05"N, 106°44'55.34"W.

Systematics

Li at al. (2018) obtained a complete mitochondrial genome of Sinocyclocheilus oxycephalus. This allowed them to show that 11 species in the genus comprised a monophyeltic group: S. grahami, S. wumengshanensis, S. oxycephalus, S. ranganensis, S. jii, and the hypogean S. anophthalmus, S. anshuiensis, S. altishoulderus, S. bicornutus, S. rhinocerous and S. furcodorsalis. This grouping does not agree with the clades proposed by Zhao and Zhang (2009) who placed the hypogean species in three separate clades angularis, cyphotergous and tingi. This situation will require further study to resolve.
