Original description as Alticorpus geoffreyi:

ZooBank:A7D27958-6DD1-4C7C-BD82-499F5657581E.

  • Snoeks, Jos & R. Walapa. 2004. "The genus Alticorpus Stauffer & McKaye, 1988". The Cichlid Diversity of Lake Malawi, Identification, Distribution and Taxonomy. 27-56 (crc01892)

Conservation: Alticorpus geoffreyi is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (2018). No threats are known for this species specifically, but similar to other Alticorpus species in Lake Malawi, overexploitation by demersal trawl fisheries may impact this species in certain areas (Konings et al., 2019).
