Astatotilapia is a genus of fish in the family Cichlidae found in Eastern and Northern Africa, and Western Asia. Many species have been moved between this genus and Haplochromis, and while some consensus has been reached in recent years, their mutual delimitation is still far from settled.[1] Based on mtDNA, Astatotilapia as currently defined is polyphyletic.[2]
