Aphyosemion sp. Bitter & Aphyosemion sp. Hellner
One of the threads on the AKA newsgroup concerned
A.sp.Bitter. Not having seen either
of the above fish I did a little digging for photos & information.
Collected in the northern part of Massif du Chaillu in Gabon.
Aphyosemion sp. Bitter
The sp. name refers to Friedrich Bitter.
Bill Shenefelt commented that they were not easy to breed & he only raised 3 females & 1 male from his original stock.
Aphyosemion sp. Hellner
Hellner. I don't know who took this photo but it's the
only one I can find to illustrate the fish.
The sp. name refers to Stefan Hellner. The collection code on the photo is GBH 01 / 24. This location is Sindara.
Also collected & distributed
was an Epiplatys which was called
Epiplatys sp. Sindara GBH 01 /
24. This was in the KFN convention 2006 at least so it has been around
for 5 years at least. A photo exists on a French forum - http://forum.aquagora.fr/9/les-images-du-congrs-du-kcf-(laschamps)/msg132811/#msg132811
