Aphyosemion bualanum (AHL, 1924)

March 21st, 2012 — 11:46am

Described from ‘Buala, Cameroon’, which corresponds to modern-day Bouala in Central African Republic. It’s known distribution includes parts of northern Cameroon, western Central African Republic, southeastern Chad and possibly eastern Nigeria in the upper Benue and Mayo Kébbi river systems.

The specific name was mis-used to refer to various populations of the congener A. elberti prior to 1990, and we’ve been unable to confirm if the specimen pictured here is correctly identified or not. It is listed as ‘endangered’ by the IUCN.

Aphyosemion rectogoense RADDA & HUBER, 1977

March 21st, 2012 — 10:35am

Known only from the Batéké plateau region and surrounding area in southeastern Gabon where it’s been recorded from the Léconi-Djouya and upper Mpassa rivers, these forming a portion of the much larger Ogooué basin. Type locality is ‘6 km west of Léconi’, the latter presumably referring to the settlement of that name.

Described from a rainforest stream near the settlement of Mintoum, northern Gabon and has a wider distribution in the upper Ivindo River basin, a tributary of the larger Ogooué system.

Thi species was considered synonymous with the congener A. herzogi Radda 1975 for a number of years but is currently recognised as distinct.

Aphyosemion elberti (AHL, 1924)

March 20th, 2012 — 11:09pm

This species’ currently accepted range stretches from eastern Nigeria (Mbam River) across central Cameroon (via the Sanaga River system of which the Mbam is a tributary) and across the border into Central African Republic (upper Mambéré basin).

It was described from ‘Jade Plateau, Cameroon’, this apparently corresponding to the Lebo River which lies in what is now the Central African Republic and presumably forms part of the Mambéré headwaters.
