Collections between Ndokayo & Garoua-Oya, Cameroon.
The DKG online list shows van Eck as the collector.
This collection does not seem to have collection numbers.
|Ndokayo & Badzéré
|A.elberti (These fish preferred shaded areas). Males had a strong green base colour. About a dozen pairs were collected.
|Mali stream, Mombal
|A.elberti. I km north of the village the Mali River flows from Garoua-Boulaï to a waterfall & then into the Lom River. The path to the Mali was down an old road which led to a river bridge. Cars can only navigate a little further in. The main Mali stream is too fast to hold elberti so another small stream a little further down the Mali. They colled 10 pairs of elberti.
|Bali stream, Mombal
|About 1 km to the south of the village the Bali stream rises. A large tree had ben cut down recently across the dtream letting light in. A.elberti were again colected in shady areas of the stream. About 12 pairs of A.elberti were collected.
|Ndokayo to Bertoua
|Towards Bertoua in a taxi they stopped at a road sign for Ndokayo on the left (east) side of the road. A path led to a stream used by locals to wash clothes & sometimes cars & motorbikes. Only a few fish were collected. This place was visited in previous years.
|Source of the Oudou River
|Male A.elberti are yellowish green with vertical red bands rather than green as in Mombal. This may be a form of A.dargei.
|East of Betare-Oya
|Stream with fast flow, contaminated & cluttered. No fish collected.
|The stream Zeuéguéne near Bétaré
|Stream west of Betare-Oya. Collected bright blue A.elberti. Similar forms can be collected widely & as far as Belabo, 100 km to the southwest.
|A creek on the south side of the village with little water & smelled like a sewer. No fish found. Another stream found on the other side of the village after a few kms walk. The stream was wide & fast flowing. Initially no fish were found but at the last try A.elberti were caught which had more red colouring in the body & more strongly coloured fins. These fish did not survive.
