Barbonymus is a genus of fish in the Cyprinidae family. Its members are commonly referred to as barbs. The genus is relatively new, with many of its members reclassified from the Barbus and Barbodes genera. The type species is the tinfoil barb (Barbus schwanenfeldii, now called Barbonymus schwanenfeldii).
