Popta's buntingi (Adrianichthys poptae) is a critically endangered species of fish in the Adrianichthyidae family. It is endemic to Lake Poso in Sulawesi, Indonesia.[2] This species was described by Max Carl Wilhelm Weber and Lieven Ferdinand de Beaufort in 1922[3] and they gave it the species name poptae in honour of their fellow Dutch ichthyologist Canna Maria Louise Popta (1860-1929).[4]
