First record of the striped bystranka, Alburnoides taeniatus (Kessler, 1874) from the Hari River basin, Iran (Teleostei: Cyprinidae)

The striped bystranka, Alburnoides taeniatus (Kessler, 1874) (Cyprinidae), is reported from the Hari River basin for the first time. In this report seven specimens were collected in July, 2016. Morphometric and meristic characteristics of the specimens were similar to those reported elsewhere for the species. Based on the obtained results A. taeniatus shows some major morphological differences including lacking stitched color pattern (typical in many Al­burnoides species), having weak scale connection, and presence of a wide flank stripe especially in the formalin and ethanol preserved specimens compared to other members of the genus Alburnoides. Therefore, conducting molecular studies to understand its exact taxonomic status is suggested.
