Etymology: Pseudophoxinus: Greek, pseudes = false + Greek, phoxinos = a certain river fish (Ref. 45335); evliyae: Named after Evliya Çelebi, the most famous Ottoman traveler, who traveled throughout the territories of the Ottoman Empire and adjacent countries. More on authors: Freyhof & Özulu?.

Morphology | Morphometrics
Vertebrae: 36 - 37. Diagnosed from all other congeners in Anatolia and the northern Levant by the combination of the following characters: incomplete lateral line, reaching from vertical of tip of pectoral fin to vertical of anal-fin origin, perforating 12-31 scales; 54-64 + 2-3 scales in lateral series; 13½ -16½ scales between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin; pelvic-fin origin slightly in front fo dorsal-fin origin; pelvic fin short, not reaching anus; pelvic axillary lobe absent; no keel between posterior pelvic-fin base and anus; prominent epidermal black stripe from eye to caudal-fin base in live and preserved individuals; snout rounded; mouth terminal; head length 26-30% SL; and predorsal length 56-61% SL (Ref. 83419).
Collected from an irrigation canal draining water from a stream. Population may have dropped dramatically due to water abstraction in large quantities from the stream and from the canals (Ref. 83419).
