AbstractA new, crab and fish eating Haplochromis species, with a piscivorous fades, occurring in rocky habitats in Lake Victoria is described. Special attention is given to the squamation of the dorsal and anal fin membranes. Food preferences of juveniles and adults are discussed, and the decline of this species, in a habitat in which piscivorous Nile perches do not occur, is analysed.
