Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 17 - 19; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9. Diagnosis: The presence of bicuspid teeth in the anterior portion of the outer row on both the upper and lower jaws and a moderately sloped ethmo-vomerine block with a swollen rostral tip place this species in Maylandia (Ref. 93436). The presence of a dark submarginal band in the dorsal fin in combination with distinct black lateral bars on a blue ground colour in the male distinguish Maylandia lundoense from all other members of the genus except from M. phaeos and M. cyneusmarginatus and some populations of M. flavifemina, M. fainzilberi and M. zebra (Ref. 93436). Males of M. phaeos, M. flavifemina, M. cyneusmarginatus and M. zebra that have a black band in the dorsal fin, all have lateral bars which extend onto the dorsal fin, a trait not found in M. lundoense (Ref. 93436). Male Maylandia lundoense are distinguished from those of M. fainzilberi by a black band in the anal fin which is absent in the latter species (Ref. 93436). Female Maylandia lundoense are distinguished from all other female Maylandia, except from those of M. nigrodorsalis, by the presence of a black submarginal band in the dorsal fin; female M. lundoense cannot reliably be differentiated from those of nigrodorsalis (Ref. 93436).

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):  2.5   ±0.2 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
