Lacustricola bragancai  (Huber, 2020)

A new but since long known lampeye species, Lacustricola bragancai, from central Angola (Cyprinodontiformes, Procatopodidae). Huber, J.H. 

Abstract: Lacustricola bragancai n.sp., from central Angola, is described following a since-long-known but savvy misidentification by famous Belgian ichthyologist Max Poll (1908 - 1991). The new species, identified by him as Aplocheilichthys myaposae while originally described from coastal fringes of East Africa, is diagnosed on preserved specimens from putatively related components of the same species-group, by absence of a mid-longitudinal dark band on sides of female, by a vestigial mid-longitudinal dark band on sides of male that is faint and only present anteriorly and divided into 2 parallel lines with a blank interspace up to vertical of end of both Dorsal and Anal fins, by a dark and more conspicuous pre-opercular dark band anterior to mid-side markings and by a slightly lower D/A deviation. The species is still unknown live like most of its congeners reported from Angola, hence its systematics are unclear. However, based on morphology, preserved pattern, vicariance and biogeographical distributions, the species may be hypothesized as phylogenetically related to Lacustricola johnstoni, myaposae, jubbi, macrurus, centralis, mediolateralis, katangae, hutereaui, plus yet un-named species that are molecularly distinct.

Lacustricola nitida (Nagy & Manda  2020)

Lacustricola nitida, a new species of lampeye from the upper Lualaba drainage, Democratic Republic of Congo (Teleostei: Cyprinodontiformes: Procatopodidae)

Lacustricola nitida, a new species, is described from a small temporary stream in the Lufupa River system, a left bank tributary of the upper Lualaba drainage in Lualaba province in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is identified as most similar to L. matthesi. Both species share the diagnostic characters of body colour pattern with brilliant blue spots at scale centres, forming longitudinal lines on the flank, and creating a reflective blue body colouration; as well as cephalic sensory system characterized by the combination of supraorbital canal with exposed neuromasts in zigzag shaped continuous groove, at preorbital level in open groove with exposed neuromasts, whereas postorbital and preopercular sensory systems tubular with pores. Lacustricola nitida is distinguished from L. matthesi by the following unique combination of characters in males: dorsal and anal fins hyaline and without markings (vs. yellow with irregularly curved dotted stripes); as well as in both sexes, a supraorbital sensory system with three exposed neuromasts (vs. four); and a series of morphometric differences, as well as the number of rays in the pectoral fin.

Lacustricola pygmaeus  (Bragança, Skelton, Bills, Tweddle & Chakona, 2021)

29 March 2021 Revalidation and Redescription of “Lacustricola” chobensis (Fowler, 1935) and Description of a New Miniature Species of “Lacustricola” from Southern Africa (Cyprinodontiformes: Procatopodidae)

Abstract:

The “Lacustricola” hutereaui species complex is herein defined by the possession of banded dorsal, anal, and caudal fins in males and also by the pointed premaxilla ascending process, in which the premaxilla medial surface is slightly convex. “Lacustricola” pygmaeus, new species, known from the Okavango, Cuando, and upper Zambezi Rivers, is distinguished from the other species belonging to the “L.” hutereaui species complex by the following exclusive character states: an inconspicuous reticulate pattern on scale margins (vs. conspicuous); banded anal, dorsal, and caudal fin in females (vs. hyaline); faint bands in the middle rays of caudal fin in males (vs. conspicuous bands); rounded caudal fin in males (vs. slender); bright green-blue color in some of the flank scales (vs. absent); quadrate posterior margin with a deep concavity (vs. convex or about straight); and first dorsal-fin ray inserted in a vertical to second and third anal-fin ray (vs. fourth to eighth). Additionally, other morphometric, meristic, and osteological characters in combination proved to be useful in distinguishing the new species. Through the analysis of type material and recently collected specimens, the little known species “L.” chobensis is considered as a valid species and redescribed. It is easily distinguished from the other species belonging to the “L.” hutereaui species complex by a combination of external morphology, osteology, and coloration pattern characters. Comprehensive information on the osteology and external morphology of topotypes of “L.” hutereaui are presented, and description of coloration in life is provided for specimens from the Ubangui River, in the Central African Republic.
