First record in France of the Ebro barbel Luciobarbus graellsii (Steindachner, 1866) (Actinopterygii, Cypriniformes).

One Ebro Barbel Luciobarbus graellsii (Steindachner, 1866) was caught for the first time on the Egurguy stream, an affluent of the Irati River (Ebro drainage), at the place-called Nekez Egina (Lecumberry town) in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department. It is the first record of this species in France known until now only in Spain, and the third barbel species in the French taxonomical frame of reference.
