Barbodes resimus[2] is a species of cyprinid fish endemic to Lake Lanao in Mindanao, Philippines where it is only known to occurs at the Agus Rapids at the lake's outlet. It is one of the several species of fish in the Philippines known as bagangan. This species can reach a length of 2.2 centimetres (0.87 in) TL.[3]

Taxonomic Issue[edit]

The specific epithet of this species has been rendered as "resinus" as appeared in one of Herre's two 1924 papers regarding this species. In the other the specific epithet is given as "resimus". It is uncertain as to which paper was published first, however he gave the etymology of the specific epithet as meaning "turned upward". This means that the intended correct spelling of the specific epithet would be "resimus" and not "resinus" which would be either lapsus calami if published first or an erroneous subsequent spelling if published last.[2]
