Pallidochromis tokolosh, new genus and species of deep water demersal
predatory haplochromine cichlid, is described from Lake Malawi, Africa.
The genus is characterised by a unique combination of the absence of
melanic spots or stripes, a strongly projecting lower jaw, widely-spaced
simple teeth of which only those of the outer series are enlarged, a
relatively shallow gape inclination and a low vertebral count.
