Abstract

In this paper we report the first record in Sardinia of a naturalized population of the roach (Teleostei: Cyprinidae); indeed, since 2011 individuals of this alien cyprinid have been caught by anglers in the artificial lake of Alto Flumendosa. Morphological and molecular (DNA barcoding) analyses performed in this study support the identification of Leucos aula (Bonaparte, 1841), syn. Rutilus erythrophthalmus Zerunian, 1982, for the 20 individuals sampled in May 2017. The presence of this alien species in Sardinia is probably due to recent unauthorized introductions; in the recent decades, similar interventions have affected most of the watersheds of the island.
