A new nemacheilid loach from the eastern Black Sea basin

Freyhof et al. recently published an article in Zootaxa. Oxynoemacheilus phasicus, new species, is described from the Rioni and Enguri River drainages in Georgia. Oxynoemacheilus phasicus is distinguished by molecular data (COI) and from other Oxynoemacheilus species in the O. brandtii group by a mottled or marbled flank pattern in adults, a slightly emarginate caudal […]

First DNA-based Records of New Alien Fre...

Japoshvili et al. recently detected two new alien species in the Republic of Georgia. DNA barcodes (CO1) were obtained from samples, which turned out to belong to Rhithropanopeus harrisii (Decapoda: Panopeidae) and Rhinogobius lindbergi (Gobiiformes: Oxudercidae). These two species were detected in Georgia for the first time. Their results emphasize the importance of taxon sampling […]

Checklist of hover flies (Diptera, Syrphidae) of the Republic of Georgia

In early 2020, Ximo Mengual and various co-authors published a checklist on the Syrphidae of Georgia in Zookeys. The data was mainly collected as part of the GGBC fieldwork initiatives in 2018 and they provide the first DNA barcodes for the syrphid fauna of Georgia.
