|Scientific Name:||Puntius padamya|
|Species Authority:||Kullander & Britz, 2008|
|Taxonomic Notes:||Kullander and Britz (2008) described Puntius padamya from the Ayeyarwaddy River drainage, Myanmar and placed under the Puntius conchonius species group. According to them, Puntius padamya is apparently the same species as the ornamental fish species known as the “Odessa barb” which was first introduced in the aquarium trade in the early 1970s. It was said to have first appeared in pet fish enthusiasts’ circles in Odessa, Ukraine, from where it got the name, and was treated later variously as an undescribed species of unknown origin, as a subspecies of P. ticto (Stallknecht 1973), or as P. conchonius (Axelrod et al. 1980).|
