" Three new species in the Amphilophus citrinellus (Günther) species complex from Lake Xiloá are described. Historically, many forms have been recorded that are phenotypically similar to A. citrinellus and in the crater lakes of Nicaragua this complex was previously considered to be represented by a single, very variable species. In Lake Xiloá, the three new species mate assortatively, and differ morphologically from each other and from all other described species in the A. citrinellus complex "
