Length-weight relationships of Turcinoemacheilus kosswigi, based on 56 individuals from two newly discovered localities in the Iranian Tigris drainage, are reported for the first time. These new localities have the same structural characters as already-reported habitats, but the species was found in much higher altitudes than before.
