Does anyone know which SPP population is that at AKA's homepage? Also,
where does one draw the line between Chromaphyosemion and Aphyosemion?
Since the welcome image changes, I assume you are talking a bout the
image from the BKA photographer Mel Addicott in 1980. At that time there
were many populations of splendopleure available, but few had
locations............ that we can only list as aquarium strain, it did
appear in some material as "multicolor".
Regarding Aphyosemion /Chromaphyosemion............ The name
Chromaphyosemion as a genus is not accepted universally, specifically the
AKA follows the Killifish Master Index 4 for all taxonomic issues, and KMI
does not list Chromaphyosemion as a sub genus as originally described.
Perhaps you noticed the absence of Chromaphyosemion in the list of genera
in the gallery............
