Metriaclima aurora (Burgess, 1976)
最初描述为 Pseudotropheus aurora:
- Burgess, Warren. 1976. "Studies on the family Cichlidae: 5. Pseudotropheus aurora, a new species of cichlid fish from lake Malawi". Tropical Fish Hobbyist Magazine. 24 (9); pp. 52-56 (crc00182).
保育: Metriaclima aurora 由国际自然保护联盟（IUCN）在濒危物种红色名录中为自然保育而进行了评估 evaluated (VU) 易危（Vulnerable） (2006). Although Metriaclima aurora is classified as vulnerable, it is not as vulnerable as many other mbuna species from Lake Malawi. M. aurora is rather common and has a wide distribution. The translocated populations in the southern part of the lake are very robust and unlikely to be affected by either over-fishing or industrial/agricultural pollution.
