Photo h: Tropheops "tropheops chitande yellow," photographed underwater at Chitande, near Chilumba, Malawi. Photo b: Tropheops "tropheops gold," photographed underwater at Chisumulu Island. Konings (1995c) identifies both of these entities with Tropheops macrophthalmus, although to Ribbink et al. (1983) they are two distinct species, neither of which they identified as T. macrophthalmus. From Plates 2h and 2b, respectively, of Ribbink et al., 1983; reproduced by permission of the Zoological Society of Southern Africa.
