Photo h: Tropheops "tropheops chitande yellow," photographed underwater at Chitande, near Chilumba, Malawi. Photo b: Tropheops "tropheops gold," photographed underwater at Chisumulu Island. Konings (1995c) identifies both of these entities with Tropheops macrophthalmus, although to Ribbink et al. (1983) they are two distinct species, neither of which they identified as T. macrophthalmus.
