I've been updating the Geophagus species profiles recently and having read a paper published last year (in which G. sveni was also described) developed a sneaking suspicion that the fish traded in the hobby as G. sp. aff. altifrons 'rio Tocantins' is actually G. neambi.

I decided to send the images we've had contributed to Paulo Lucinda, the principle author of the description, to see what he thought and he's just confirmed that all the fish in these images are indeed G. neambi.

G. sveni is after Dr. Kullander yes and 'neambi' is a patronym (NEAMB) for the department of environmental studies at the Tocantins Federal University.

So how about these Colin; I think to remember you had an interest in Geophagus? And these sure do look fine!!
