Aphyosemion wildekampi (Bergenkamp 1973). First specimens were caught immediately east of Bertoua, eastern Cameroon,  in a brook along a road to the airport. The area is on the frontier of forest & savannah dividing the ranges of A. elberti & A. exiguum. The original biotope was a 'plantless creek, with emerse vegetation' shaded by forest. A. wildekampi was very abundant with few A. elberti. A 1973 collecting trip found the forest cut back. A.wildekampi was less frequent than A. elberti.

Callopanchax sidibei. Named after Mr. Samba Sidibe and his family, who first collected and made it available to the fishkeeping hobby. Endemic to the Kindia region of Guinea. Type locality is puddles, ditches and connected pools in shady secondary forest by small creeks; these flood during rainy season and provide cover, fresh water and food for growing juveniles; during dry season pools and ditches dry out, and the adults most likely die but can also move into the flowing creek.

Chromaphyosemion volcanum, endemic to the drainage system of the Kake River in the area around Mount Cameroon, western Cameroon.  inhabits the swampy parts of brooks and small streams in the rain forest, mainly on volcanic soils (Wildekamp et al. 1986). It is a benthopelagic, non-migratory species and is not a seasonal killifish. The species is difficult to maintain in an aquarium (Huber 1996). One male spawns with several females.
