Original description as Metriaclima lundoense:

ZooBank:FE4B0145-6B24-4B19-87B4-99D5AFDC651C.

Conservation: Metriaclima lundoense is not evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species. Although M. lundoense has been collected for the hobby it is rather common around Lundo Island and unlikely to be threatened in the near future by overfishing. Local fishermen do not yet target this or other mbuna which could become a possible threat in the future.
