Etymology: Coreoleuciscus: Greek, kore, -es = pupil and also with themenaing of "maid" + Greek, leykos = white (Ref. 45335); aeruginos: The specific name 'aeruginos' from Latin refers to the bluish-green coloring, like verdigris.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic. Tropical
Asia: Seomjin and Nakdong rivers in South Korea.

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 9;
Vertebrae: 39 - 40. Coreoleuciscus aeruginos differs from C. splendidus by the following body coloration and shape and/or presence of black bands on dorsal, anal and caudal fin rays: bluish-green line above the luteous line (vs. golden line immediately above a luteous line that runs along a lateral line on side of body); a luteous line immediately above a black line present during the spawning season (vs. bright yellow line immediately above a violet and bluish line running along lateral line on side body during spawning season); dorsal fin with a thin and continuous band both distally and basally (vs. a thick and discontinuous distal band and a thick and continuous basal band); anal fin with thin and relatively short distal band and without basal band (vs. anal fin with quite thick and long distal dark band and short basal band); and caudal fin with with three stripes in centrosymmetric structure, a thick and continuously band distally across lobes, one pair of two thick bands separated into two lobes medially, and a thick and short one at the basal part (vs. seven bands in centrosymmetric structure, three pairs of six thin bands separated into two lobes at medial and distal-most areas and a thin basal band extending outwards (Ref. 100736).
Usually occurs in rapids of streams (Ref. 100736).
