Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16-18; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 16 - 18; Vertebrae: 32. Diagnosis: Nothobranchius streltsovi males are similar to other members of the N. ugandensis species group in possessing light blue scales with a broad, irregular, reticulated pattern on the body, oblique red or orange bars on the head and dorsum, yellow or blue anal fin, large vivid red spots on the dorsal and anal fins, rounded head with slightly concave to nearly straight dorsal profile, convex predorsal profile from nape to posterior extremity of dorsal-fin base, and variable cephalic squamation; males can be distinguished from all other species of this species group by the following combination of characters: scale margins orange; caudal fin orange, spotted proximally; pectoral fin spotted proximally; anal and pelvic fins with a pattern of red dots, light blue proximally, yellow or creamy white distally; seven branchiostegal rays; 31-34 longitudinal scales; 14-16 transverse scales; 15-16 circumpeduncular scales; supraorbital neuromast formula 2+3+4 (Ref. 116792).
