Aulonocara saulosi Meyer, Riehl & Zetzsche, 1987


Original description as Aulonocara saulosi:

  • Meyer, Manfred & R. Riehl and H. Zetzsche. 1987. "A revision of the cichlid fishes of the genus Aulonocara Regan, 1922 from Lake Malawi, with descriptions of six new species (Pisces, Perciformes, Cichlidae).". Courier Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg. pp 7-53 (crc00062)

Conservation: Aulonocara saulosi is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (2006). I agree that this species, although rather uncommon at all locations, does not seem to be threatened.
