Re: [Killietalk] Blue Gularis
You have to be careful about anything you read in the old literature
about blue gularis and the other fish it was confused with. There was
confusion between it, then known as Aphyosemion coeruleum and the
so-called Golden Pheasant, now known as Callopanchax occidentalis, but
then know an Aphyosemion sjoestedti. I would have to look up up when
this confusion, caused by a mididentification, was cleared up, but as I
recall it was in the 1960s. Anyway if old literature refers to Aphyo.
sjoestedti it is probably referring to C. occidentalis.
