Above: Pseudotropheus cyaneus (P. "elongatus
chinyamwezi"), photographed underwater at Chinyankwazi
Plate 6f of Ribbink et al., 1983;

Zoological Society of Southern Africa.
Below: The holotype of P. cyaneus (USNM 290925), an adult male
74.0 mm SL from Chinyamwezi Island; drawing by M. Katz. From "Fig. 2" of
Stauffer (1988) (which goes with his Fig. 1
caption; the light coloration, deeper body, much longer pelvic
fin, and 18 dorsal spines of the fish shown below all indicate
that this is the holotype of P. cyaneus and not of
P. ater as captioned).
