    All I know is that it’s one of several geographically-isolated Iranian Aphanius that may turn out to be distinct species and is very similar to A. persicus (differs in female patterning). It’s supposed to be from Lake Namak which appears just south of Tehran on maps but when I wrote to Brian Coad last year he had nothing on habitat/water chemistry, etc. Not a lot but hope it helps.
