The distribution and abundance of Cobitis simplicispina was assessed in the tributaries of the Sakarya Basin, surrounding Ankara. The total abundance and the proportion of this species within the ichthyofauna at all seven sampling sites were 149 individuals per 50 m and 3.67 %, respectively. Compared with an earlier study at the same sampling sites, some slight differences in distribution were observed.
