Gery, J.: On a small collection of characiform fishes from the middle Sangha River, Zaire basin, with the description of a new Phenacogrammus (Teleostei: Ostariophysi: Alestidae), pp. 4-12.

Abstract

Description of Phenacogrammus taeniatus n. sp., apparently close to P. smykalai, and belonging to the alestopetersius group, of uncertain taxonomic level. It is characterized by a colour pattern reminiscent of that of the distichodid Nannaethiops unitaeniatus. Some sympatric, already known species are discussed: the association of the young Brycinus macrolepidotus with young B. poptae, Phenacogrammus altus (new for the Sangha), with a key to the closely related species, and Distichodus affinis (new for the Sangha).
