The embryonic and early larval development of laboratory reared Zagros tooth-carp, Aphanius vladykovi Coad, 1988, are described and illustrated. Development and embryogenesis start with the external fertilization of sticky, transparent and spherical telolecithal/macrolecithal eggs with a mean diameter of 1.61 +/- 0.12 mm and it continues with meroblastic/radial cleavage, blastulation/blastula formation, epibolic cell migration during gastrulation and organogenesis resulting in a newly hatched larvae of 5.23 +/- 0.09 mm in length with attached yolk sac at about 164 hr (at 24 +/- 1 degrees C) after fertilization.
