Platyallabes tihoni (Poll, 1944)


Carl J. Ferraris, Jr., 2007, Zootaxa 1418: 1-628 [1]

Platyallabes tihoni is the only species in the genus Platyallabes of catfishes (order Siluriformes) of the family Clariidae.[1] This species is found in the Malebo Pool.[1] P. tihoni has a body plan that is intermediate to the generalized, fusiform (torpedo-shaped) type such as Clarias species and the anguilliform (eel-shaped) type such as Gymnallabes.[2] This species is known to grow up to 52.8 centimetres (20.8 in) TL.[3]
