Abstract

A new species of killifish, Lebias stiassnyae, is described from Lake Afdera, Ethiopia. It is readily distinguished from all congeners by the unique combination of a sharply upturned lower jaw oriented nearly perpendicular to the body axis, an open cephalic neuromast system, the lack of an interarcual cartilage, an obliquely positioned pectoral fin base, and a large body size.
