Comments on the Identification of Poll's type of Aphyosemion maeseni by Sonnenberg & Busch, 2009.

Jean Huber 

Abstract: The identification of Poll's type of Aphyosemion maeseni and its assignment to the status of nomen dubium in the genus Epiplatys are discussed based on the historical study of that type by previous researchers, including the author, on the description paper by Poll in 1941, along with the description of Epiplatys olbrechtsi. The validity of the type species of Nimbapanchax, N. leucopterygius Sonnenberg & Busch, is also discussed.
