Valdesalici, Stefano and Rudolf H. Wildekamp: A new species of the genus Nothobranchius (Cyprinodontiformes: Nothobranchiidae) from the Luapula River basin, Zambia, pp. 89-96

Abstract

Specimens of three different populations of a Nothobranchius species, collected from ephemeral pools in the Luapula/Bangweulu catchment in Zambia, are considered to be one species on the basis of the coloration of males. The new species has been compared with the Nothobranchius species now known to exist in the same river system. It differs in some morphological features from the other species of Nothobranchius in the same river system and has a distinct colour pattern. Information on its present known distribution is given, as well as on its relationship to the other Nothobranchius species in Zambia and in the adjacent region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
