Chromidotilapia regani


[[ Chromidotilapia regani  ]]

The remaining Chromidotilapia  ZBK  in Gabon, C. regani (Pellegrin, 1906)  , seems not to have a closer relative species within the genus in Gabon. A high number of gill rakers on the first branchial arch and pigmentation patterns differentiate this species from all other Chromidotilapia  ZBK  in Gabon, but suggest a closer relationship to C. guntheri  (Lamboj, 2003 in press).
