Abstract

Here we explain why the species name Aphaniops hormuzensis (Teimori, Esmaeili, Hamidan, Reichenbacher, 2018) should be considered as valid. As a consequence, the species name Aphaniops teimorii Freyhof and Yoğurtçuoğlu, 2020 should be treated as a junior synonym of A. hormuzensis.

Keywords

Taxonomy, Aphanius.
