|Identification||Members of the genus Hemibagrus are bagrid catfishes that can attain standard lengths of up to 800 mm and are found in large rivers throughout the Indian subcontinent,Southeast and East Asia. Members of this genus have depressed heads,rugose head shields not covered by skin,a slender occipital process and moderately long adipose fins.
Hemibagrus sabanus differs from all other members of the H. baramensis species group in having a larger adipose fin located nearer the dorsal fin (length of adipose-fin base 28.9–34.9% SL vs. 19.3–26.3; dorsal to adipose distance 1.2–4.4% SL vs. 4.7–10.6), a more slender caudal peduncle (depth 7.2–9.4% SL vs. 8.7–11.4), and (except for H. semotus) the upper lobe of the caudal fin regularly tapering (vs. rounded posteriorly). The dorsal fin of H. sabanus also has a narrower appearance. The membranes between the rays in H. sabanus are narrower with an extended second dorsal-fin ray (absent in all other members of this species group), with the fin having a lunate appearance, whereas in all other members of this species group, they are much broader, allowing the fin to be spread wider and imparting a more rounded appearance to the fin.
