Abstract

Puntius tiantian is described from Putao in northernmost Myanmar, diagnosed by having a dark vertical bar anteriorly on the side, a dark blotch on the caudal peduncle, slender and weakly serrated last unbranched dorsal fin ray, and complete lateral line. Puntius didi is described based on material from Myitkyina and Indawgyi Lake. It is similar to P. tiantian in color pattern, but possesses a thicker and more strongly serrated last unbranched dorsal fin ray, and a shorter lateral line perforating only 6–10 scales. The single record of P. phutunio from Myanmar most likely represents misidentified P. didi.
