Salmo tigridis, new species, from the Tigris River drainage, Turkey, is distinguished from the other species of Salmo in Turkey and adjacent basins by having a greater number of scale rows between the end of the adipose-fin base and lateral line (19-20, vs. 12-17); a greater number of scale rows between dorsal-fin origin and lateral line (32-35, vs. 23-32); and a deeper and stouter caudal peduncle (its depth 11.5-12.6 % SL, vs. 9.3-11.5, except in S. cf. macrostigma).

The taxonomy and nomenclature of the fishes of the superfamily Cobitoidea (suborder Cobitoidei minus Catostomidae) are reviewed. Original descriptions of all 1499 recorded species-group names and 185 genus-group names have been checked for correct spelling, types and bibliographic references. The bibliography includes about 1010 titles. 1043 valid species in 111 valid genera are recognised. Synonymies are given, based on published information as well as unpublished observations. Endings consistent with the three possible Latin grammatical genders of genus-group names are indicated for all species-group names; basic tools are provided to establish the correct endings in most simple cases. The main nomenclatural acts are: - new family-group names: Serpenticobitidae, Barbuccidae; - new genera: Ambastaia (type species: Botia nigrolineata), Theriodes (type species: Acanthophthalmus sandakanensis), Speonectes (type species: Sundoreonectes tiomanensis); - lectotype designation: Cobitis stephanidisi (sensu Economidis, 1992); - declaration as nomen protectum: Cobitis biwae; - declaration as nomen oblitum: Cobitis schlegeli; - first reviser action on precedence of simultaneous synonyms: Parabotia kimluani over P. vancuongi, Cobitis taenia turcica over Cobitinula anatoliae, Sewellia medius over S. grandis, Parasewellia monolobata over P. polylobata, Cobitis turio over C. bilturio, Triplophysa bashanensis over T. longchiensis, Yunnanilus macrositanus over Y. forkicaudalis; - first reviser action on correct spelling of: Parabotia vancuongi, Cobitis fahireae, Hemimyzon songamensis, Sewellia analis, Parasewellia polylobata, Vanmanenia monofasciodorsalata, V. trifaseudorsala, Oreonectes microphthalmus, Paracobitis posterodorsalus, Yunnanilus macrositanus, Y. forkicaudalis, Y. spanisbripes. © National University of Singapore and the author.

It is distinguished by a greyish body, with the flank and back covered by numerous irregularly shaped small black spots and dots, imparting a peppered or slightly marmorated appearance; few to numerous red spots on body, organized in two to six irregular longitudinal rows on middle part of flank, each red spot usually comprising three or four smaller red dots wholly or partially coalescent; adipose fin grey, conspicuously coloured, with three or four red to orange spots on its free edge; 103-112 lateral line scales; 26-28 scales rows between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin; 18-21 scale rows between anal-fin origin and lateral line; length of maxilla 8.7-9.6 % SL in males, 8.1-9.1 in females. Salmo euphrataeus, new species, is described from northeastern tributaries of the Euphrates River. It is distinguished by a brownish body in life; few (4-54) black spots on body, restricted to back (usually missing in predorsal area) and upper part of flank, mostly anteriorly; few (13-53) red spots on body, usually organized in two to five irregular longitudinal rows on median and lower part of flanks; adipose fin almost reaching base of caudal fin in males larger than 210 mm SL, without or with up to three red or orange spots on free edge; 112-120 lateral line scales; 28-31 scale rows between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin; 20-24 scale rows between anal-fin origin and lateral line; length of maxilla 9.6-11.4 % SL in males, 8.4-10.2 in females.

Cyclocheilichthys is the valid name for the genus that includes Barbus apogon Valenciennes. Cyclocheilichthys has precedence over Anematichthys, which is a simultaneous objective synonym. If C. enoplos is considered not to be congeneric with C. apogon, the valid name for a genus that includes it is Cyclocheilos. Copyright © 2013 Magnolia Press.
