Oxynoemacheilus phoxinoides (Erk'akan, Nalbant & Özeren, 2007): a junior synonym of Oxynoemacheilus angorae (Steindachner, 1897)

Erdogan ÇIÇEK, Soheil EAGDERI, Sevil SUNGUR

Abstract

Oxynoemacheilus phoxinoides described from the Iznik Stream, Marmara basin, Turkey based on an awkward description. This study aimed to test the synonymy hypothesis of O. angorae and O. phoxinoides due to its uncomplete description and very low genetic distance of 0.2% with O. angorae. Morphometric and meristic characters of O. phoxinoides are largely overlapping or even identical with those of O. angorae, a species known from Sakarya basin. Oxynoemacheilus phoxinoides is treated as a junior synonym of O. angorae.

Keywords

Lake İznik, Sakarya basin, Genetic distance, Biodiversity.
