"Eureka Red" is a common mass market fish that is not a natural fish. Line bred, and maybe not pure, depends. Not all are really all that colorful, quality varies widely. "Red Jacobfreibergi" is not normally used.

Now there are natural Jacobfreibergi.
"Otter Point" is the original "Malawi Butterfly". Quite rare now, because it is rarely imported. A unique Aulonocara from Malawi, the combination of colors.
There also is a fish called Aulonocara "carolinae" which was also called "Swallowtail". More dull rusty reddish-orange. The tail does look more curved, or at least give the illusion.

Looking at the pics on the internets, not sure if the name "Swallowtail" is used meaningful way by many.
