Comments:
Haplochromis "Yssichromis" pyrrhocephalus is a benthopelagic cichlid, living and foraging near the muddy bottom, with zooplankton constituting the major part of their diet. They are a slender fish with a more muted, but no less appealing coloration that is mostly coppery. Males sport some orange on the snout, head and the back. Recent observations in the Lake have noted a marked increase in their abundance in contrast to their previous decline.

You will note that we have indicated the genus Yssichromis as a subgenus in quotation marks until a re-evaluation of Humphrey Greenwoods classifications is completed.
