Above: This thoroughly nondescript little cichlid is tentatively identified as an Mchenga inornata, one of the Utaka. This was apparently the first specimen to be collected since Boulenger described the species from two specimens in 1908. In 2006, Stauffer & Konings transferred this poorly known species to their newly created genus Mchenga. Photo copyright © by M. K. Oliver.
