AbstractA new species of a haplochromine cichlid (Pisces: Cichlidae: Haplochrominae) from Lake Victoria is described. It is the largest species known from the Mwanza gulf area before the Nile perch upsurge in 1986. Specimens have been collected between 1975 and 1985. Presumably, the species does not exist anymore and is considered to be extinct.
