Pseudophoxinus evliyae, new species, from a small stream near Sogut, Western Anatolia, is distinguished from other Anatolian Pseudophoxinus by an incomplete lateral line, 54-64+2-3 scales in lateral series, 131/2-161/2 scales between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin, a prominent black stripe and a rounded snout and short head. This species vas previously identified as P. fahirae. Pseudophoxinus fahirae is tentatively placed in the genus Chondrostoma. Pseudophoxinus from Lake Burdur and Salda basins are re-examined and identified as P. ninae.
