Nothobranchius krammeri n. sp., a small annual killifish collected from a seasonal pool in Meronvi River basin, northeastern Mozambique, is described. It differs from all congeners by the following combination of characters: ?13-15 dorsal fin rays; 14-15 anal fin rays; 24-27 scales in median lateral series; pelvic fin tips not reaching anus; male body and head scales light blue with pale red or orange margin; snout reddish; throat orange to yellow; frontal and superior portion of head reddish; anal fin yellowish with a pattern of narrow pale brown lines; caudal fin pale red with a small black seam along its outer margin, and a sharply delineated hyaline submarginal band. Based on coloration of males and morphological aspects, this new species belongs to the Nothobranchius melanospilus species group.
