" Hispaniolan cichlids are poorly known, and because of the cluestionable taxonomic status of two species, the group is reviewed. Nandopsis vombergi (Ladiges, 1938) is regarded here as a junior subjective synonym of the widespread Hispaniolan species Nandopsis haitiensis (Tee-Van, 1935). The holotype and only known specimen of ]i]N. vombergi lacks any features that discriminate it from N. vombergi. The Miocene fossil 'Cichlasoma' woodringi Cockerell, 1924 is assigned to Nandopsis Gill, 1862 based on apomorphics it shares with members of that genus. "
