I just received a ship­ment of (so-​called) Parosphromenus deiss­neri from Bangka, Indone­sia and with it a pair of fish said to be dif­fer­ent from the rest — obvi­ously caught at a dif­fer­ent loca­tion.

Here he is, and he sports just the right char­ac­ter­is­tics to be a true Parosphromenus bin­tan



And another shot; show­ing the white pelvic fin fil­a­ment



Cheers

Thank you very much for post­ing this Zahar :)

In fact, every­thing we know is only some kind of approx­i­ma­tion, because we know that we do not know all the laws as yet. There­fore, things must be learned only to be unlearned again or, more likely, to be corrected.Richard P. Feyn­man

Zahar, it’s clearly no deiss­neri. Whether it is a true bin­tan, is open for dis­cus­sion. It’s near to it, since it looks very sim­i­lar to it, but I hes­i­tate to already claim it iden­ti­cal. There are two probems: (1) It’s def­i­nitely caught at a loca­tion dif­fer­ent from all knowm hith­erto in the lit­er­a­ture or by per­sonal infor­ma­tion (Linke, Kishi) because all of these loca­tions on Bangka were com­pletely destroyed in 2016 already (dry, no black­wa­ter any­more, even mostly no water at all = pre­pared for being used as arable land for plant­ing oil­palm trees). Of course, bin­tan has been reported from Bangka for­merly and it is pos­si­ble that it occurs still today there at some other place. (2) The sec­ond prob­lem is that we have other pho­tos of a non-​deissneri from Bangka that looks a bit dif­fer­ent than your fish. I pre­fer to keep the species iden­ti­fi­ca­tion an open question.
