Are these the same fish?

Is Melanochromis Loriae a new scientific name/collection point for Melanochromis Parallelus ; or are they the same fish?

Hi Kyboy,

Melanochromis parallelus is now Melanochromis loriae. It is found around 12 different places in the Lake Malawi. They are the same fish.

Hope that helps!
