Etymology: Astatotilapia: Greek, astato = unstable + Bechuana, African native thiape = fish (Ref. 45335).

Issue
This species is placed in the genus Haplochromis Hilgendorf, 1888 in Eschmeyer (CofF ver. Mar. 2011: Ref. 86697). We keep the lacustrine and riverine "Haplochromine" species in the genus Haplochromis only for the Lake Victoria catchment following Van Oijen et al. (1996: Ref. 12750), until a new complete taxonomic revision is published.

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 9.0 cm SL macho / no sexado; (Ref. 49182)

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Inhabits swampy lakes and slow streams (Ref. 4967). The maximum length of 110 cm given by Eccles (1992) [Ref. 4967] is apparently a mistake, maybe for 11.0 cm.

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01445 (0.00674 - 0.03099), b=2.97 (2.80 - 3.14), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
