Metriaclima benetos Stauffer, Bowers, Kellogg & McKaye, 1997


最初命名為 Metriaclima benetos:

ZooBank:836B8E37-5114-4993-B420-3374D6F8F8B1.

保育: Metriaclima benetos 被評鑑為國際自然保育聯盟瀕危物種紅皮書名單中的 (NT) 近危 (2018). Two years ago (2018) I thought that rock-dwelling mbuna would be relatively safe from being overfished, but the situation in the southern part of the lake is so dire with 60+ trawlers dragging nets 24 hours seven days a week that most traditional fishermen have resorted to mosquito nets scraping the last tiny fry out of the lake or to gill nets catching mbuna in rocky areas. Most of these rocky areas are within National Park waters but not so the reefs in Mazinzi Bay. If I had to evaluate M. benetos again today I would place them back to the status VULNERABLE.
