choprae, Danio (Brachydanio) Hora [S. L.] 1928:39, Fig. 2 [Records of the Indian Museum (Calcutta) v. 30 (pt 1); ref. 15856] Small rocky streams about Kamaing and Namma, Myitkyina District, Upper Myanmar. Holotype: ZSI F10811/1. Named for Dr. B. N. Chopra, a man. The spelling choprae is acceptable; early workers almost certainly Latinized the name first, and then added an 'e' (Art. 31.1.1) [WNE, 12 Mar. 2012] -- we suggest using choprae. See Das 2003:355 [ref. 27706] with date as 1929. •Valid as Danio choprae Hora 1928 -- (Barman 1991:36 [ref. 22192], Fang 2000:25 [ref. 24479], Fang 2001:17 [ref. 25285]). •Valid as Brachydanio choprai (Hora 1928) -- (Talwar & Jhingran 1991:358 [ref. 20764], Sen 2007:27 [ref. 29657]). •Valid as Celestichthys choprae (Hora 1928) -- (Kottelat 2013:85 [ref. 32989]). •Valid as Danio choprae Hora 1928 (also seen as choprai) -- (Fang 1997:42 [ref. 22873], Fang 1998:273 [ref. 23299], Fang et al. 2009:16 [ref. 29983], Kullander & Fang 2009:41 [ref. 30285], Kullander & Fang 2009:223 [ref. 30706], Kullander 2012:245 [ref. 32309], Ahmed et al. 2013:285 [ref. 32872], Kullander & Britz 2015:246 [ref. 33764], Kullander & Norén 2016:544 [ref. 34857]).
