Abstract
This paper reports the first record of a population of the Neotropical convict cichlid, Amatitlania nigrofasciata (Günther, 1867) from Iran, the second record of this species from the Middle East and the only known extant wild population in the region. This new record is based on collection of eight specimens of a leucistic strain of A. nigrofasciata taken from Golabi Spring, a fresh warmwater site in the Kol River (Hormuzgan basin). Source of the population is most likely due to releases by local people. Specimens captured included small and large individuals, indicating possible establishment.
