December 2009.

A new genus and two new species have been described by Sonnenberg and Busch in November 2009. All species of Arciaphyosemion except Archiaph. guineense have been moved to the new genus Nimbapanchax. Archiaph. maeseni has been identified as an Epiplatys species, and populations previously referred to this species have been described as Nimbapanchax leucopterygius. Nimbapanchax melanopterygius has been described, it is a species closely related to Nimbapanchax leucopterygius, from which it differ by the colorpattern of the anal fin. The uidentified species "Beple" probably belongs to Nimbapanchax melanopterygius.
