Above: Pseudotropheus ater (formerly known
as P. "elongatus black"), photographed underwater at Chinyankwazi
Plate 6g of Ribbink et al., 1983;

Zoological Society of Southern Africa.
Below: The holotype of P. ater (USNM 290927), an adult male
79.1 mm SL from Chinyamwezi Island; drawing by M. Katz. From "Fig. 1" of
Stauffer (1988) (which goes with his Fig. 2
caption; the dark coloration, more elongate body, and much shorter pelvic
fin of the fish shown below all indicate that this is the
holotype of P. ater and not of
P. cyaneus as captioned).
