It is with great sorrow that I communicate to you that Robert Allgayer has passed away last night. Robert was a French ichthyologist known for his many works on cichlids, which included his participation in the elaboration of the Cichlid catalogue (Pisces, Perciformes, Cichlidae Bonaparte, 1840), as well as the scientific description or many American and African taxa, bot at generic and specific level. Robert was also an important propel and collaborator of the French Cichlid Association. He will be missed. Au revoir Robert

Why not. He has done a lot for us.

The only pity was that many of his publications remained within the france cichlid association.
