    Abstract

    Aphanius marassantensis, new species, is described from the Kızılırmak River drainage in northern Anatolia based on
    colouration, meristic and morphometric characters, and the mtDNA COI barcode region. It is distinguished from other
    Anatolian Aphanius by one or several of the following characters: a stout body shape (BD/SL 28.2–39.6%), complete scale
    cover, and 25–28 scales along the lateral line. Males have 8–13 dark-brown lateral bars, of which the antepenultimate bar
    anterior to the caudal-fin base is 0.9–1.8 times wider than the anterior white interspace, 2–3 vertical rows of spots on the
    caudal fin, a black dorsal fin, sometimes with a narrow whitish-grey base, a white anal fin with 1–3 rows of black spots,
    in some individuals with a black margin, and hyaline pelvic fins. Females do not have vertical rows of dark-brown spots
    on caudal or anal fins, but numerous dark-brown spots on the flanks, arranged in 1–3 lateral rows behind a vertical from
    the dorsal-fin base. Their dorsal fin is hyaline with tiny dark-brown spots on rays and membranes; pectoral fins, caudal
    and anal fins are hyaline, and one prominent large dark-brown blotch is situated in mid-lateral position on the hypural
    plate. The new species is also distinguished by 11 fixed, diagnostic nucleotide substitutions in the mtDNA COI barcode
    region. The description of this new species, which brings the number of Anatolian Aphanius species to 12, underlines the
    character of Anatolia as a region of extraordinarily high biodiversity.

    Think this should be the population from the Kızılırmak River formerly regarded as belonging to A. danfordii. Would love a copy of this please!
