Etymology: Haplochromis: Greek, Haploos = single + Greek, chromis = a fish, perhaps a perch (Ref. 45335);  pancitrinus: The nam pancitrinus ('παγκίτρινος') is composed of the Greek words for complete, whole; 'πάν' and 'κίτρινος' which means yellow; it refers to the live colouration of males (Ref. 85523).

Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Vertebre: 29 - 32. Diagnosis: Haplochromis pancitrinus is a small sized (less than 9 cm standard length), relatively slender (body depth 29.0-33.5% of standard length), micrognathic species, with mainly bicuspid teeth in the oral jaws (Ref. 85523). Although there are many species that resemble Haplochromis pancitrinus, no other species are known with the typical golden-yellow colouration of sexually active males, without any distinct markings (Ref. 85523).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Found in sub-littoral waters of the northern part of the Mwanza Gulf over mud bottoms; occasionally it was caught over mud bottoms, in shallower areas more southward in the Gulf (Ref. 85523). Before the ecological changes in Lake Victoria, this species fed on phytoplankton, mainly Cyanophyta; the diet further included Chaoborus larvae, copepods and occasionally detritus (Ref. 85523). Based on the egg dummies on the anal fin and the egg size in ripe females, this species is a female mouth brooder (Ref. 85523).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01479 (0.00684 - 0.03200), b=2.98 (2.80 - 3.16), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
