The recent allocation of the cyprinid complex Squalius alburnoides to the genus Iberocypris in the Handbook of European Freshwater Fishes is refuted by confirming evidence of a close relationship with the genus Squalius. Squalius alburnoides is here defined as a complex based on the existence of a hybrid form with distinct genome combinations and ploidies and of a reconstituted nuclear non-hybrid male form also with hybrid origin.
