Comments:
The somewhat unique characteristic of the Haplochromis "Xystichromis" sp. "flameback" is the bright yellow anal fin. This Victorian is a phytoplankton and detritus eater. While this is a true species, it is frequently mis-identified since the name "flameback" is given to many Victorians as a common name when no identification is known.

All of the genus proposed by Humphrey Greenwood are being re-evaluated. When this occurs, the zoological classification rules require that the fish revert back to a the generic genus until a determination is made. It is for this reason that we have listed the former genus designated by Greenwood in quotation marks as a subgenus after the generic genus Haplochromis.
