Idification, distribution and taxonomy. Less than half of the 800 or more estimated cichlid species from lake Malawi are described, and many of thos only in superficial terms. All kind of taxonomic problems abound a both species and genus level. This makes studying these fishes quite a challenge. Several genera or parts of genera have been revised in this book; about 40 new species have been describe and many species reported for the first time, with each given a provisional working name. About 270 black and white or color illustriations of these fishes have been included to facilitate their identification.
