Chromidotilapiini is a tribe of small cichlids from tropical West and Middle Africa. There are thirteen genera and over fifty described species in this tribe.

The following genera are classified within the tribe Chromidotilapiini:[1]

Benitochromis Lamboj, 2001
Chromidotilapia Boulenger, 1898
Congochromis Stiassny & Schliewen, 2007
Divandu Lamboj & Snoeks, 2000
Enigmatochromis Lamboj 2009
Limbochromis Greenwood, 1987
Nanochromis Pellegrin, 1904
Parananochromis Greenwood, 1987
Pelmatochromis Steindachner, 1894
Pelvicachromis Thys van den Audenaerde, 1968
Teleogramma Boulenger, 1899
Thysochromis Daget 1988
Wallaceochromis Lamboj, Trummer & Metscher 2016[2]

The genus Pelmatochromis is sometimes placed in its own clade, informally referred to as the pelmatochromines, and this as the Pelmatochromini, may be the sister taxon to the Chromidotilapiini.[3]
