Ahl, E. 1924. Zur Systematik der altweltlichen Zahnkarpfen der Unterfamilie Fundulinae. Zool. Anz., 60 (1-2): 54. Diagnosis: A fan-shaped Caudal fin, with upper and lower extensions in male (as for Fundulopanchax arnoldi: convergence or relationship?) ; deep-bodied smaller species, with a generalized variable color pattern ; the often sympatric annual species Pronothobranchius kiyawensis and Fundulosoma thierryi are easily separated from adult males Caudal fin : rounded for the former, fan-shaped with upper and lower extensions for the latter.

Notes
Status specie: Accepted generally. The greatest difficulty in breeding and maintaining this species is due to its small size at birth. Feeding with infusoria is essential during the first week. After all, it is not a difficult fish nor is it very different from the maintenance conditions of the majority of the Genus Nothobranchius.
