Etymology: Eutropiichthys: Greek, eutropheia = well fed + Greek, ichthys = fish (Ref. 45335); salweenensis: The specific name 'salweenensis' is in reference to the Salween River, the type locality of this species.. More on author: Vari.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; demersal. Tropical
Asia: Salween River in Thailand, but presumably more broadly distirbuted through the basin in both eastern Myanmar and western Thailand.

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 13.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 75095)
Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 53 - 55;
Vertebrae: 52 - 54. Distinguished from all other species of the genus by the combination of the following characters: gill rakers on the first arch 18-20; branched anal-fin rays 48-50; length of accessory premaxillary tooth patch extending posteriorly nearly to the terminus of the gape; posterior limit of the upper jaw under the orbit; fleshy flap along the anterior margin of the posterior naris barely extending medial of the medial margin of the naris for a distance distinctly less than the transverse length of the posterior naris; pectoral-fin spine length 18.7-21.3% SL: lateral margin of the pectoral spine smooth; and snout in lateral view rounded (Ref. 75095).
