Justification:

Puntius nankyweensis is thought to have a restricted range. Although it is known only from four locations near Myitkyina in Myanmar, where its total extent of occurrence is approximately 6,000 km2, more research needed to determine its real distribution, population structure, and threats are needed to make a proper assessment. It is therefore listed as Data Deficient.
