The Cichlid Fishes of Lake Malawi, Africa

Abstract of Publication

Anseaume, L., and G.G. Teugels. 1999. On the rehabilitation of the clariid catfish genus Bathyclarias endemic to the East African Rift Lake Malawi. Journal of Fish Biology 55: 405-419.  

A morphological and osteological study on a large number of specimens, together with zoogeographical data, indicate that the genus Bathyclarias, previously synonymized with the genus Dinotopterus, is a valid genus. It is rehabilitated in this paper. Bathyclarias is endemic to Lake Malawi, while Dinotopterus is confined to Lake Tanganyika.
