Hy,
thanks you guys...

Thomas, I do have the article but it has been years since I read it and I totally forgot about it. I just re-read it :)
I am very happy I came to the same conclusion just by looking at the fish as I am now knowing it better... :?

Really an interesting story 'bout this fish... applying all the criteria given in the description and in Heinz' article, I am sure now that my picture shows a N. cf ventralis. (number of scales/gillrakers and vertebrae)
I have so far never even seen a hint of the true N. wauthioni and I don't know anybody who has. Wonder if it is still around or in fact just geografically constrained...

cheers

Adrian
