" The paper is concerned with an attempted arrangement of haplochromine taxa into monophyletic lineages. The idea of so-called Haplochromis 'species-flocks' assumed to be of mono- or oligophyletic origin is refuted as many lineages described are composed of species from at least 4 of the lakes. The overall picture is one of a super-flock comprised of several lineages whose members cut across the boundaries imposed by the present-day lake shores. 10 new genera and 5 subgenera are described "
