" The type species of the cichlid genus Sciaenochromis is Haplochromis serranoides Ahl, 1972, renamed H. ahli (Trewavas, 1935) because of homonymy. Re-examination of the holotype in Berlin and rediscovery of the species in Lake Malawi show that S. ahli is not the species so identified by Trewavas (1935) and by Eccles & Trewavas (1989). S. ahli is redefined and is limited to its type species and three related species, here named and described as new to science. "
