typie88,

When you read the text above the pictures, he was convinced, to the point of not breeding them, that l. xanthopteryx is available as a hybrid.

He is saying that his L. xanthopteryx was not a pure bred L. xanthopteryx. In other words it is fraudulently advertised as L. xanthopteryx, and samaki is correct.

Hi I 've sent Lithochromis xantopteryx to the US and they were pure bred but the fish on the pics looks very different from what I sent, it's an hybrid with some pundamilia genes in it(perhaps crimson tide) and there is an error, L.xantopteryx is synonym with H.black and orange pseudonigricans and H;black pseudonigricans but he fish on pic is not L.xantopteryx

this was the original xantopteryx
