Unknown "Haplochromis" Furu Images Being Added

Post by Mark Smith » Mon Aug 06, 2012 10:43 am

Just a note to all who are interested, Juan is posting images of undescribed "Haplochromis" from Lake Victoria under the Unknown Furu/Lake Victoria section of Cichlidae.com from the Mwanza Gulf, Lake Victoria [Tanzania]. The fish belongs to the Anker and Barel 1977 collection and remain preserved at the British Museum of Natural History. Several images will be added weekly for the time being. Most depicted species are likely extinct, and so it is a valuable/informative historical visual record of some of the species that used to inhabit this lake.
