"Leuciscus" is a genus of fish belonging to the family Cyprinidae. They are commonly called Eurasian daces; familiar species include the Common Dace and Ide. The genus is widespread form Europe to Siberia.

The European chubs were formerly included in this genus; they are now usually separated in "Squalius". But delimitation of "Leuciscus" and "Squalius" is not completely resolved; some species have been moved from one genus to the other only in recent years. "Petroleuciscus" and "Telestes" have also been split off from "Leuciscus" in recent times; for ther latter the same holds true as for "Squalius" regarding the unclear delimitations.
