Bellstedt Abstract: Members of the Nothobranchius ugandensis species group Tanzania are characterized by a yellow or light blue anal fin with a red-brown irregular spotted pattern in males. Nothobranchius albertinensis from the Albert Nile drainage in western and north-westem Uganda is characterized by a yellow dorsal fin with stripes in medial part parallel to fin rays; yellow anal fin without markings; and anal fin positioned anterior to dorsal fin. Nothobranchius attenboroughi from the Grumeti and other lesser systems east of Lake Victoria in northern Tanzania is characterized by a light blue anal fin with red-brown dots proximally and medially, and becoming yellow distally with narrow red-brown stripes parallel to fin rays. Nothobranchius hoermanni from the upper Wembere drainage central Tanzania characterized by a red throat, light blue anal fin with red- brown spots and stripes proximally and medially, and with a broad light blue distal zone without markings; pectoral fin hyaline with red-brown stripes parallel to fin rays, and exposed branchiostegal membrane red- brown, with cream distal margin Nothobranchius itigiensis from the uppermost Ruaha drainage and the Bahi Swamp area central Tanzania is characterized by a yellow anal fin with red-brown spots proximally, that merge medially to a pattern parallel to fin rays and are fused distally to form a marginal band. Nothobranchius moameensis from the Moame system south of Lake Victoria in northern Tanzania is characterized by a light blue anal fin with red-brown dots proximally and medially, and with light blue or yellow distal zone without markings. Nothobranchius venustus from south-western Lake Victoria basin in north-western Tanzania is characterized by a dorsal fin with a narrow light blue sub distal band and a narrow red-brown to black distal band; a light blue anal fin with irregular red-brown stripes perpendicular to fin rays proximally and medially, and orange with red-brown stripes parallel to fin rays in distal zone.
