Etymology: Poropuntius: Greek, poros = porous + Greek, punctum = marked with points (Ref. 45335). More on author: Fowler.
This species is questionably a synonym of Poropuntius laoensis (Günther, 1868) in Eschmeyer (CofF ver. May 2011: Ref. 86870) following Kottelat (2001: Ref. 43281). Please send references, or more studies are needed.

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01175 (0.00550 - 0.02508), b=3.00 (2.83 - 3.17), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low to moderate vulnerability (33 of 100) .
