Metriaclima xanstomachus (Stauffer & Boltz, 1989)

保育: Metriaclima xanstomachus 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). Although M. xanstomachus was nowhere in its distribution very common it doesn't appear to be immediately threatened with extinction. However, with the recent catastrophic decline of the plankton-feeding cichlids in Lake Malawi the focus of the local fishermen is shifting to the smaller rock-dwelling fish in the lake. These can only be caught with gill nets and M. xanstomachus is large enough to get entangled in such nets. For this reason the species is listed as Near Threatened by the IUCN.
