Boehlkea fredcochui now Knodus borki

22. January 2009

Dr. Axel Zarske found that the species imported for decades under the name Boehlkea fredcochui in truth represented a species of the genus Knodus so far unknown to science. The real Boehlkea fredcochui was now and then imported under the trade name Boehlkea sp. Sky Blue. So our good old aquarium fish is now named in honour of the aquarist Dieter Bork as Knodus borki.
