Re: some interesting news

In your country, do you need a permit for fishing?
In many place, when you are collecting fish, you often see guys in uniform coming to you and asking what you are doing...
So, when you are a foreigner and you have fish... $$

Re: just a thought

No Endymion. It is not Frans and Leiden who is supposed to described this species. But Les Kaufman is in the way to describe several including rockkribensis according Frans/
Remember, we were together in Leiden with Frans :)

Re: just a thought

Researchers from Leiden. Mainly, Frans Witte and Martin van Oijen. May be publications in september, depends on reviewer and review I think.
According Frans, Les Kaufman is also supposed to described some species like Haplochromis sp "rockkribensis".
But just wait.

Re: Tropheops and Pseudotropheus

Tropheops was described as a subgenus of Melanochromis. no?
Now, fish from this subgenus has to be under genus Pseudotropheus?
