Changes in the nomenclature of Tropheops

Some changes in nomenclature for the genus Tropheops were made based on the discovery by Konings (2022) of the correct type locality of Tropheops tropheops, the type species of the genus, and of Pseudotropheus novemfasciatus. The changes include the re-identification of T. tropheops for what we listed as Tropheops sp. 'broad mouth’ — this latter profile was deleted. What we previously listed as Tropheops tropheops is now referred to as T. sp. 'orange chest'. Additionally, a new profile for Tropheops sp. 'masimbwe' was created for what we previously listed as Pseudotropheus novemfasciatus. The real P. novemfasciatus was previously listed as Pseudotropheus sp. ‘lucerna brown chia’ — the latter profile is now deleted (Juan Miguel Artigas Azas)
