Abstract

Two new species of Squalius are described from the Seyhan River drainage in Turkey: S. adanaensis from the lower part
of the drainage and S. seyhanensis from the upper part. Squalius adanaensis is distinguished from the other species of the
genus in Anatolia, among other characters, by having the flank scales with a dark spot on each scale pocket but covered
by the posterior margin of the previous scale, and very few melanophores along the posterior margin; 38–42 + 1–2 lateral
line scales; and a maximum known size of 157 mm SL. Squalius seyhanensis is distinguished from other species of the
genus in Anatolia, among other characters, by having the flank scales with a dark spot on each scale pocket, exposed, and
densely-set melanophores along the posterior margin, forming a conspicuous reticulate pattern; 42–44 + 1–2 lateral line
scales; and a maximum know size of 240 mm SL.
