Two specimens were sent to D. Thys van den Audenaerde of the Musée Royal de L'Afrique Centrale, Tervuren, Belgium. He identified them as T. melanotheron (Rüppel 1852). He stated that among this species synonyms are both T. macrocephala (Bleeker 1862) and T. heudelotii (Dumeril 1859). The specimens are catalogued as M.R.A.C Pisces R. G. 153722-723. Mrs. E. H. Neil cataloged four further specimens in the Stanford University Museum as T. macrocephala, S. U. 63547.
An earlier draft of this paper was submitted in partial fulfillment of the M. S. degree by J. R. O. to the Department of Zoology, University of Illinois.
We wish to thank Dr. Jack A. Ward for his suggestions on the statistical analysis. We are grateful to D. Thys van den Audenaerde and Mrs. E. H. Neil for their curatorial help. This research was supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (GB 2210) to G. W. Barlow.
