- Boulenger, George Albert. 1906. "Fourth Contribution to the Ichthyology of Lake Tanganyika - Report on the collection of fishes made by Dr. W. A. Cunnington during the third Tanganyika Expedition, 1904-1905". Transactions of the Zoological Society of London. Vol. 17, Part 6(1): pp. 537-619. DOI: 10.1111/j.1096-3642.1905.tb000 (crc00004)
保育: exLamprologus multifasciatus 由国际自然保护联盟（IUCN）在濒危物种红色名录中为自然保育而进行了评估 evaluated (LC) 无危（Least Concern） (2006). Apart from erosion which brings sediment in the lake covering up the various shell beds, exLamprologus multifasciatus is not threatened in its existence. Shell-beds are common in the southern part of the lake and exLamprologus multifasciatus is found there in dense populations.
