Name[edit]

Boraras urophthalmoides (Kottelat, 1991)

Type locality: Thailand: Pattani Province: swamp near Sai Buri River, 43 km northwest of Naratiwat on road 42, Ban La Han.

Etymology: urophthalmoides: from the specific name urophthalma, and Greek εἶδος (eîdos), meaning ‘form, likeness’, because this species was formerly referred to erroneously as Rasbora urophthalma. The epithet urophthalma is from the Ancient Greek οὐρά (ourá), meaning ‘tail’, and ὀφθαλμός (ophthalmós), meaning ‘eye’, in allusion to the black spot on the caudal-fin base.
