Photo c: Maylandia "newsi," photographed underwater at Chisumulu Island; Konings (1995c: 154) identifies this creature as Pseudotropheus heteropictus [now Maylandia heteropicta].
Photo g: Pseudotropheus heteropictus [Maylandia
heteropicta] according to Ribbink et al. (1983),
photographed underwater at Thumbi West Island, Malawi.
Konings (1995c: 154), apparently in reference to this photograph, remarks
that the scientific name heteropictus "...has erroneously been
applied to a large species from Thumbi West Island, Ps. sp. 'black
dorsal heteropictus'...." Thus, if Konings is correct, only the mbuna in
photo c is actually Maylandia heteropicta. Photos from Plates 9c
respectively, of Ribbink et al., 1983;
