Etymology: Ancherythroculter: Greek, agchi = near + Greek, erythros = red + Latin, culter = knife (Ref. 45335).
This species is tentatively considered a synonym of Ancherythroculter daovantieni (Banarescu, 1967) in Eschmeyer (CofF ver. May 2011: Ref. 86870) following Kottelat (2001: Ref. 44416). Please send references, or more studies are needed.

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5312 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100) .
