Review of the East Asian minnows of Iran (Family Xenocyprididae)

Brian W. Coad

Abstract

The systematics, morphology, distribution, biology and economic importance of the East Asian minnows of Iran are described, the species are illustrated, and a bibliography on these fishes in Iran is provided. There are five species, all exotics, in the genera Ctenopharyngodon (1 species), Hemiculter (1), Hypophthalmichthys (2) and Mylopharyngodon (1), variably introduced throughout Iran for fish farming and, in the case of Hemiculter, accidentally.

Keywords

Morphology, Exotics, Ctenopharyngodon, Hemiculter, Hypophthalmichthys, Mylopharyngodon.
