Alburnus battalgilae Ozulug & Freyhof, 2007 from the Gediz River drainage in western Anatolia is a junior synonym of A. attalus Ozulug & Freyhof, 2007, from the adjacent Bakir River drainage. We were unable to confirm the morphologi-cal differences originally proposed. As both species have been described in the same publication, as First Reviewers, we prioritise of A. attalus over A. battalgilae.
