Abstract

A new species of catfish of the subfamily Doumeinae, of the African family Amphiliidae, was discovered from the Kasai River system in northeastern Angola and given the name Congoglanis howesi. The new species exhibits a combination of proportional body measurements that readily distinguishes it from all congeners. This brings to four the number of species of Congoglanis, all of which are endemic to the Congo River basin.
