ANOTHER New Botia species?

I saw some Botias yesterday that I've never seen before. They were labelled as "Yellow-finned Botias", so I homed in on the tank (like a shark in feeding frenzy!),expecting to see Botia lecontei, but no. They don't look like the pic of B. pulchipprinnis that I posted either, being much longer in the body.
I would describe them thus: Body shape of Botia superciliaris/lucas bahi, etc, (i.e., long and slim).Head and snout profile the same as modesta. Body colour same as modesta, although these were a bit pale due to stress of NO cover in bright tank. What I mean is same colour as modestas that I've seen in same circumstances. Yellowish fins
