" Neolamprologus devosi sp. n., a new species of riverine lamprologine cichlid is described from the
lower Malagarasi River, Tanzania. The new species is tentatively placed within the poorly defined
genus Neolamprologus, though generic reassignment may be necessary once ongoing work on the
phylogeny and classification of lamprologines is completed. Notably, Neolamprologus devosi sp.
n. does not present characters diagnostic of Congo (ex-Zaire) River lamprologines, and contrary to
previous suggestions appears to be phylogenetically distinct from those taxa. This raises questions
regarding the number of putative riverine colonizations of lamprologines from a lacustrine source. "
