Comments:
M. Labrosus possibly does not even belong in the Melanochromis species; although the polychromatic coloration certainly does imply mbuna. M. Labrosus has fleshy lips that are bent backwards. Both male and female are brown, but the male has a redish shine. But orange females have been found near Chitandi Island. Another possible hint of not belonging to Melanochromis is the strongly compressed body, like the Altolamprologus Compressieseps from Lake Tanganyika. M. Labrosus feeds mainly on organisms that can be found in horizontal slits between rocks.
