Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Siluriformes (Catfish) > Mochokidae (Squeakers or upside-down catfishes)
Etymology: Chiloglanis: Greek, cheilos = lip + Greek, glanis = a fish that can eat the bait without touching the hook; a cat fish (Ref. 45335);  kazumbei: This species is eponymously named for Mr. George Kazumbe, an expert fisherman and friend from Kigoma, Tanzania; he has assisted the authors and several of our colleagues doing fieldwork in Tanzania, and we wish to honor him for his service (Ref. 87986).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 5-6; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 10 - 11; Vertebrae: 34 - 35. Chiloglanis kazumbei can be distinguished from all species in the Malagarasi and Luiche basins by the following combination of features: relatively long dorsal spine length (16.1–21.3% SL vs. 7.5–13.6% SL in C. asymetricaudalis; 8.2–12.7% SL in C. igamba; 4.1–7.8% SL in C. orthodontus); relatively long pectoral spine length (19.1–23.6% SL vs. 12.1–16.5% SL in C. asymetricaudalis; 9.9–15.1% SL in C. igamba; 10.9–17.2% SL in C. orthodontus); relatively wide occipital shield width (6.1–8.3% SL vs. 3.7–4.7% SL in C. asymetricaudalis; 2.8–4.9% SL in C. igamba; 2.4–3.8% SL in C. orthodontus); and moderately long adipose fin length (17.1–22.8% SL vs. 13.3-19.8% SL in C. asymetricaudalis; 10.3–16.3% SL in C. igamba; 25.0-31.3% SL in C. orthodontus) (Ref. 87986). Additional features that distinguish C. kazumbei from congeners within its range include a distinctive pigmentation pattern with dark patches on the dorsal and pectoral fins, a dark band on the anal fin, and a caudal fin that is deeply forked with a slightly longer lower lobe vs. not deeply forked (C. lufirae, C. igamba & C. orthodontus, or forked with greatly elongated upper lobe in males (C. asymetricaudalis) (Ref. 87986).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species is typically found in small to moderate sized rapids (Ref. 87986).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
