Abstract

Nothobranchius cooperi, Nagy, Watters and Bellstedt, new species, is described from seasonal streams and ephemeral pools associated with the upper Mansa River system in the middle Luapula drainage and systems draining into the low-lying area marginal to the southwestern part of Lake Bangweulu, in the Luapula province of northern Zambia. It belongs to the N. brieni species group. Males of Nothobranchius cooperi are distinguished from congeners by the following unique combination of characters: body scales with broad orange posterior margin, forming a highly irregular cross-barred pattern; anal fin fairly uniform orange-red with irregular to regular, light blue-green zone close to the base; caudal peduncle length 1.2–1.3 times its depth; prepelvic length 48.8–51.9% SL; and head depth 75–77% of head length. Genetic divergence of the mitochondrial COI and ND2 genes and nuclear S7 gene support the distinction of the new species from its closest known relative, N. rosenstocki and confirms its position in the N. brieni species group.

Nothobranchius flagrans (Nagy 2014)

Nothobranchius flagrans, a new species of annual killifish from the Lufira drainage, Democratic Republic of Congo (Cyprinodontiformes: Nothobranchiidae)

Abstract: Nothobranchius flagrans, new species, is described from ephemeral swamps of the Mufufya River, tributary of the Dikuluwe system in the lower Lufira drainage in Katanga province of Democratic Republic of Congo. It is identified as belonging to the N. brieni species-group of which it shows the diagnostic characters in males: caudal and anal fins proximal portion spotted, distal part with light margin or light submarginal band and dark margin; an absence of a dark distal margin on the dorsal fin; an absence of spots on head; and absence of black posterior margin of scales. Nothobranchius flagrans is distinguished from all other species of this species-group by the unique combination of the following characters in males: anal and caudal fins with broad orange-red submarginal band and distinct dark grey distal margin; dorsal fin with red-brown submarginal band and distinct light blue distal margin; prepelvic length 49.5-52.6 % SL; head depth 86-92 % HL; and caudal peduncle length 151-161 % of its depth.

Nothobranchius kadleci (Cyprinodontiformes: Nothobranchiidae), a new species of annual killifish from central Mozambique. Zootaxa 2332: 49–60 (2010)

Abstract:  Nothobranchius kadleci, a new African annual killifish species, is described from the drainages of the Save, Gorongose, Pungwe and Zangue Rivers in the Sofala Province of central Mozambique. Nothobranchius kadleci is similar to Nothobranchius furzeri from which it is distinguished by colouration (red pelvic fins, red lips, more extensive red colouration on body) and morphology (larger distance between pectoral and pelvic fins, shorter anal and dorsal fins, and shorter base of the anal fin). The currently known distribution of these two species is allopatric, with the N. kadleci range north of the N. furzeri range. Nothobranchius kadleci occurs sympatrically with Nothobranchius orthonotus and Nothobranchius rachovii, from which it can clearly be distinguished by different colour patterns of the fins and body, head shape and morphometric characteristics. A total of 12 populations were recorded between the northern bank of the Save River and southern bank of the Zambezi during collection trips in February 2008 and February 2009.

Two new annual killifish species, Nothobranchius kardashevi, new species, and N. ivanovae, new species, are described based on specimens collected in ephemeral pools in the Katuma River drainage system, western Tanzania. Nothobranchius kardashevi, new species, belongs to the N. ugandensis species group and N. ivanovae to the N. taeniopygus species group. Both are distinguished from the respective other group members by a diagnostic combination of male colouration and morphological characters.

Nothobranchius niassa (Cyprinodontiformes: Nothobranchiidae), a new species of annual killifish from northern Mozambique. Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters, 23 (1): 19-28

Abstract: Nothobranchius niassa, new species, is described based on specimens collected in pools within seasonal streams in upper catchments of the Rovuma River, Niassa Reserve, northern Mozambique. It differs from its congeners by a unique combination of characters: dorsal fin rays 15-18, anal fin rays 15-17, light blue iris, light blue dorsal and anal fins with curved red stripes, and red pectoral fin. According to analysis of sequence variation within the cytochrome oxidase I locus, N. niassa is a well-distinct taxon related neither to the N. melanospilus species group nor to N. kirki, but clusters with very high support with a clade including N. guentheri, N. albimarginatus, N. korthausae, N. foerschi, N.cardinalis and N.kilomberoensis (subgenus Adiniops). Within this clade, the closest related species is N. kilomberoensis, known from Kilombero River floodplain, Tanzania, although with moderate support.

Abstract: A new species of annual killifish, Nothobranchius nubaensis, is described based on specimens collected from ephemeral water bodies in central Sudan and south-west Ethiopia. The new species is distinguished from the other members of the Nothobranchius ugandensis species group by the following combination of characters: 17-19 dorsal fin rays; 17-19 anal fin rays; 29-30 scales in median lateral series; dorsal and anal fins in males with short filamentous rays; pelvic fins short, tips reaching the anus; orange red head with three distinct oblique bars on the operculum; dorsal fin light blue with a pattern of irregular orange-red spots and elongated yellow spots in distal areas; anal fin yellow, light blue at base, with a pattern of orange-red spots; pelvic fins yellow with a pattern of orange-red spots; pectoral fins orange-red with a light blue margin; caudal fin orange-red with short pale or dark red lines, extending from fin base onto fin rays.

Abstract: Two new species of annual killifish, Nothobranchius bellemansi and Nothobranchius occultus, are described from specimens collected in seasonal waters of southern Kordofan State in Sudan. Males Nothobranchius bellemansi are similar to Nothobranchius rubroreticulatus by presence of a broad light blue submarginal stripe and black marginal stripe on unpaired fins, but are distinguished by a deeper body, shorter head and by having the median portion of unpaired fins spotted, females are separated by a pattern of very small red spots on unpaired fins. Nothobranchius occultus is considered to be closely related to N. virgatus due to similarities in head profile, snout ventral profile and pelvic fin shape, and is distinguished from all other congeners by males with long pelvic fins and completely dark red brown body and fins in preserved specimens. Additionally a lectotype for Nothobranchius rubroreticulatus is designated.

Nothobranchius torgashevi (Valdesalici, 2015)

Nothobranchius torgashevi (Cyprinodontiformes: Nothobranchiidae), a new species of annual killifish with two male colour morphs from the Lake Eyasi basin, central Tanzania.

zoobank.org:pub:FDDB9CDA-9448-4DD0-B498-E28D098AD50A

Abstract: Nothobranchius torgashevi, new species, is described from a single locality, a temporary ditch associated with an unnamed affluent within the Mhwala River drainage, a tributary of the Wembere River in the Lake Eyasi basin. It is assigned to the N. ugandensis species group, members of which are defined by: colour pattern in males consisting of light blue scales with a broad, irregular, reticulated pattern on the body, vivid orange or red oblique bars on the head and dorsum, a yellow or blue anal fin, and large vivid red spots on the dorsal and anal fins; head rounded slightly concave to nearly straight dorsally; predorsal profile convex from nape to posterior extremity of dorsal fin base; cephalic squamation variable. N. torgashevi can be distinguished from other species in this assemblage by a combination of characters, including colour pattern and number of scales in the transverse and circumpeduncular series. Uniquely within the genus Nothobranchius, sympatric male colour morphs differ only by possession of white or yellow pigmentation on the distal portion of the anal fin.
