The morphometric characters of Muraenolepis (commonly identified as M. microps) were studied. It was found a small relevance of features accepted so far as diagnostic: dorsal filament length, mental barbel length and eye diameter. The length of lateral line exceeds that in individuals of M. microps described so far in the available literature, reaching far beyond the anus. Its chord length being on average 49.66% of L. Stand., indicates to M. marmoratus presumably.
