Africa: Lake Victoria, Rufiji and Lake Rukwa systems (Ref. 78218), questionably in Tana River in Kenya (Ref. 52331). Also in Okavango, Zambezi, Pungwe, Buzi, Save systems as well as in the Lake Malawi catchment (Ref. 7248). Presence in the Congo basin questionable (Ref. 51287, 58032, 78218). As it currently stands, this species probably represents a complex of several different species (Ref. 7248).

Kurzbeschreibung Morphologie | Morphometrie

Rückenflossenstacheln (insgesamt): 2; Rückenflossenweichstrahlen (insgesamt): 5-6; Afterflossenstacheln 0; Afterflossenweichstrahlen: 11 - 13; Wirbelzahl: 35 - 38. Diagnosis: This species differs from Zaireichthys lacustris and Z. maravensis in possessing a premaxillary tooth patch that is less than 40% of the mouth width; it has shorter barbels than Z. wamiensis, maxillary barbel 0.9-1.3 in head length vs. 0.7-0.9; and it is distinguished from Z. compactus by higher number of branched pectoral-fin rays, 7 vs. 6 (Ref. 86935).

Biologie     Fachlexikon (Englisch) (z.B. epibenthic)

Inhabits fairly shallow water (Ref. 13337). Occurs over sand, usually buried with just the eyes protruding. Feeds on minute organisms. Eggs few (12-16) and large (3-5 mm diameter) suggesting possible parental care (Ref. 7248).
