Abstract

The systematics, morphology and biology of an endemic fish, the Mond tooth-carp, Aphanius pluristriatus (Jenkins 1910) (Cyprinodontidae) are summarized. A. pluristriatus is a poorly known species from Fasa, located in the Mond River drainage system (Bushehr Basin). This fish is not listed in IUCN’s Red Data Book, but it should be included due to criteria such as restricted distribution, destruction of spawning grounds and environmental pollution. Since its first description, its validity has been questioned and a synonymy with A. sophiae (Heckel, 1849) has been suggested. For this reason, its biology has been neglected. However, recently, its validity was confirmed. In this study, the limited data on this fish and its threats are summarized and discussed.
