The gudgeon, Microphysogobio tungtingensis uchidai, originally described by Banarescu and Nalbant in 1973 is reduced to a junior synonym of M. yaluensis based on the 5 type specimens in the USNM. Confusion on the taxonomic position of Microphysogovbio t. uchidai seems to have resulted from the inadequate description of the papillae of the upper lip and the reference to the small specimens.
