New Dwarf Rasbora Boraras species described

I thought some with small tanks would be interested in this. The dwarf species of rasbora in the Boraras genus are ideal fish in 10g tanks. Two are currently in the profiles, Boraras maculatus and Boraras brigittae, and there were five species in the genus until now. I revised the existing profiles accordingly when I read the scientific paper describing this new species a week or so ago, but here is a short article with a photo. This species has been in the hobby for a while, though rare, and it was originally thought to be a variant of another species, but Drs. Conway and Kottelat have determined it is a distinct species, so here it is.
