最初描述为 Lamprologus calliurus:
- Boulenger, George Albert. 1906. "Fourth Contribution to the Ichthyology of Lake Tanganyika - Report on the collection of fishes made by Dr. W. A. Cunnington during the third Tanganyika Expedition, 1904-1905". Transactions of the Zoological Society of London. Vol. 17, Part 6(1): pp. 537-619 (crc00004)
保育: exLamprologus calliurus 未被国际自然保护联盟（IUCN）在濒危物种红色名录中为自然保育进行评估. exLamprologus calliurus has a lake wide distribution and is too small to play any role as food fish even though plankton-feeding males would be liable to be caught in nets. As far as I can see there is no threat to the existence of this species.
