Aphyosemion campomaanense

10. January 2011

For the first time ever we have this pretty killifish in stock. Our specimes are German bred. This up to 5 cm long fish originates from Cameroon. It has been described scientifically in 2009. The closest relative of this species is the well known Aphyosemion ahli. The easiest way to distinguish these two species from each other is by the coloration of the caudal fin, which is bordered in A. ahli by two almost identically broad and yellow bars. In A. campomaanense the upper bar is much narrower and whitish.

For our customers: the animals have code 306553 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Aphyosemion from ancient Greece, means „small fish with flag-like fins“. campomaanense: after the type locality, the Campo-Ma'an National Parc in Cameroon. ahli: dedication name for Ernst Ahl, at times ichthyologist working in Berlin.

Suggestion of a common name: Campomaan-killi
