Eccles & Trewavas (p. 46: fig. 7) illustrated P. pleurotaenia using the drawing from Regan (1922: fig. 10). This specimen is one of the syntypes (BMNH 1908.10.27:89) of Haplochromis microstoma Regan, a species now synonymized with P.
pleurotaenia; thus, the correct species is illustrated. However, they mistakenly captioned this figure as showing the lectotype. Eccles & Trewavas designated (1989: 47) as lectotype of P. pleurotaenia BMNH 1906.9.6:139, the specimen that had
been figured by Boulenger.
