Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 18-21; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 19 - 21; Vertebrae: 26. Diagnosis: Nothobranchius bellemansi can be distinguished from all other species of the genus Nothobranchius by the following unique combination of characters: 18-21 dorsal fin rays; 19-21 anal fin rays; 29-30 scales in longitudinal series; short pelvic fin, tip reaching anus; terminal portion of mouth on ventral profile pointed; males and females unpaired fins median portion with red spots (Ref. 97568).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The type locality comprised a pool in a clay depression containing a few centimeters of standing water in the savannah floodplains southeast of the Nuba mountains; these depressions become filled during the rainy season, with certain deeper parts retaining water for longer periods (Ref. 97568).
