Etymology: Poropuntius: Greek, poros = porous + Greek, punctum = marked with points (Ref. 45335).
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 of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01023 (0.00495 - 0.02116), b=3.02 (2.85 - 3.19), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low to moderate vulnerability (33 of 100) .
