Labidochromis mathotho, holotype; photo by Dr. Herbert R. Axelrod, from
Burgess & Axelrod (1976)

The freshly killed and fixed holotype of Labidochromis mathotho (USNM 215032, said to be a male 68.2 mm SL). The type locality, unfortunately, was reported merely as "Lake Malawi." Lewis (1982), in his revision of Labidochromis, was unable to identify any other specimens with L. mathotho but considered that his own L. heterodon was closely similar and possibly identical.
