Amatitlania
provided by wikipedia EN

Amatitlania is a genus of cichlid fishes from Central America from El Salvador and Guatemala to Panama. The genus is closely related to Archocentrus and Cryptoheros, and contains the convict cichlids that were previously placed in those genera.(All text before this was copy pasted from Google) The genus was erected by Juan Schmitter-Soto in 2007 based on a study of the Archocentrus complex.[1] However, a 2008 study led by Oldrich Rican has suggested that all the species in Cryptoheros and Amatitlania should be moved into the genus Hypsophrys.[2]
