This classic taxonomical work by David H. Eccles and Ethelwynn Trewawas is a jewel to have for those seriously interested in Malawian cichlids. This book contains scientific descriptions for 23 new genus of Malawian haplochromines, as well as copies of the full descriptions for the species in those genus. Yet the edition of the book was just limited to 1000 copies.

Illustrations and black and white photographs are included for the species and a key of identification given. The book also contains a brief history of collecting in Lake Malawi and an outline of the environmental conditions in the major areas where collections have been made.
