最初描述为 Pseudotropheus saulosi:
- Konings, Ad. 1990. "Descriptions of Six New Malawi Cichlids". Tropical Fish Hobbyist Magazine. 38 (11): pp. 110-129 (crc00111)
保育: Chindongo saulosi 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 (VU) 易危（Vulnerable） (2006). During the last decade several collectors of ornamental fish have concentrated on catching large numbers of C. saulosi and as a result the species is becoming scarce. When I last visited the reef (September 2010) there were only a few specimens to be seen. It would be a shame when aquarists’ demands for wild-caught fish would extirpate this beautiful mbuna which is available in large quantities from professional breeders. Let’s hope that the current economic downturn slows down the removing of rare Malawi cichlids from the wild.
