Weird news from Iran

I have been poking around, trying to find references to loaches in book/journal form, and found one book that referred to the "Loaches of Iran." Unaware that our fishy friends appeared this far west, I looked up Iran on Fishbase, and actually there are a number of Cobitis, Schistura, Neimacheilus and others found there - who knew?
Nemacheilus insignis occurs as far west as Iraq, as well, to my surprise...
Just thought I should mention it.
