A new cyprinid fish of the genus Garra is described from the Khuga river of Churachandpur district of Manipur state, India. The species differs from Garra lissorhynchus (McClelland) in having a smaller number of. scales in lateral line (30-31 vs. 33-34), lateral transverse scale count (3/1/3 vs. 4/1/3), pre-dorsal scales (11-12 vs. 14), gill rakers (6 vs. 12). The fish also differs from Garra rupecula (McClelland) in having a smaller number of gill rakers (6 vs. 8), scales on lateral line (30-31 vs. 34) and also in the presence of scales on the back. G rupecula is characterised by the absence of scales on the pre-dorsal region. The new species also differs from both the species under comparison in its colour banding pattern on the caudal fin.
