Range Description

Haplochromis bakongo is known only from the types from the Kwilu River drainage in the Lower Congo River basin. The type series is mixed and specimens from the Lukunga (Kasai) appear to be Haplochromis stigmatogenys (Stiassny, in lit.). Subsequent efforts to relocate the species have been unsuccessful and much of Kwilu is heavily impacted by agricultural development.
