acutirostris was described from specimens
collected throughout Myanmar (Day 1870). Habitat:
There is some evidence that more than one species
of Pachypterus (Neotropius) is present
in the Irrawaddy River drainage, since there appears
to be two forms - one with a distinctly overhanging
snout and one without (D. Neely, pers. comm. to H.H.
Ng). This awaits further investigation (IUCN 2010).This species inhabits larger rivers.
Colouration: Silvery, a black spot on the
occiput and a black blotch at base of dorsal fin.
Remarks:Listed in Fishbase as still in the Schilbeidae
family but in Eschmeyer's Catalog of Fishes
the current status is the family Horabagride.
Asia:Irrawaddy, Sittang, and Bago Rivers, Myanmar.
Type Locality: Throughout Burma.
