Hemirhamphodon

Hemirhamphodon (Hemirhamphodon pogonognathus), is a genus of halfbeak found in peaty and lowland forest streams in Southeast Asia. These fish are viviparous and are sometimes kept as aquarium fish, but otherwise have no commercial value.

Six species are known, all relatively small, the largest species being about 4 inches in length. This species clearly shows the extended lower jaw that provides halfbeaks with their common name.
