I downloaded a "article in press"-version of that article a few months ago. The tree they came up with is really interesting.
For example: the relationship between the look-a-likes "L". multifasciatus and "L". similis. They seem to be quite far apart...

and caudo and leloupi too... really strange
and telmato vittatus and brichardi/bifrenatus !!!!!!
T. vittatus beeing closely related to the congolese sp (congoensis and teugelsi) !
nl olivaceous belongs to savoryi grpoup and helianthus to brichardi group (everybody knows that it's the contrary !!
These 2 groups beeing clearly separated as well as the large and small Julidochromis (the small one including Chalinochromis)

and tatracanthus in the text instead of tretocephalus


too much strange things

Indeed. I guess some future recalculating will make a better tree :) As I explained in the 'morphology vs phylogenetics' topic :)
