Relevant Information:

Eutropiichthys burmannicus was described from an unknown locality in Myanmar (Day 1877). This species is known from the Irrawaddy River drainage in Myanmar eastwards to the Salween River drainage in western Thailand. This species inhabits the main channel of large rivers, as well as its larger tributaries. The substrate in such habitats is generally sand or mud (H.H. Ng). Remarks: Eutropiichthys burmannicus is still listed in Fishbase as being in the Schilbeidae family but it is updated in The Catalog of Fishes as in the family Ailiidae.
