Illustration of the holotype of Thoracochromis wingatii as it appears in Boulenger, George Albert; 1907; "The Fishes of the Nile"; Zoology of Egypt; London; 2 vols; pp. 1-578, Pls. A-F, I-XCVII. The illustration is labeled H. desfontainii because Pellegrin put T. wingatii in synonymy with this species in 1904 (An then Boulenger in 1907 and 1915). T. wingatii was re-validated in 1922 by Charles Regan.Photo by J Green. Sent by Ad Konings.
