Specie trattati in questo articolo: Callochromis pleurospilus

Description:

Callochromis pleurospilus was described by Boulenger in 1906, under the name of Pelmatochromis pleurospilus, but was moved to the new genus Callochromis, established by Regan in 1920, where it still remains today. Callochromis have some similarities in common with species in the genus Xenotilapia, but differ primarily by having only two lateral lines and the outer ray in the ventral fins being longer than inner ray, whereas Xenotilapia (sensu Poll 1986) have three lateral lines and the outer ray in the ventral fins are shorter than or equals the inner ray.
