|Abstract||Among a collection of fishes, sent by Mr. Jackson Demery from Liberia, were 11 examples which, at first sight, seemed to me to agree with Hemichromis fasciatus Peters. A careful examination led me to give some remarks on the characters of this species, which will make the determination more easy, and contribute to resolve the question: do the examples of Hemichromis fasciatus, till now described by the authors, belong to one and the same welldefined species.|
The material of Hemichromis fasciatus now in the Leyden Museum, including the 11 above mentioned specimens, consists of a number of 28 examples, namely: a. N°. 2278. 3 spec., length 80, 115 and 125 mM. Dabocrom. Pel coll., 1850.
