The existence of a Xenotilapia species in the southern part of Lake Tanganyika with a close resemblance with X. ochrogenys has been known for a long time, as Max Poll already in 1956 mentioned a southern form of X. ochrogenys, which according to his description matches the cichlid we know today as X. sp.
