Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 16 - 18; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 8-10; Taggstrålar i analfenan 3; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 7 - 9. Diagnosis: A moderately-sloped head and bicuspid teeth in the outer row of the jaws place this species in Maylandia (Ref. 86409). Male M. mossambica from Chiloelo are distinguished from those of all other members of Maylandia by the absence of a black submarginal band in the dorsal and by black streaks in the caudal and in the posterior portion of the dorsal fin; male M. mossambica from Chinuni are distinguished from those of all other Maylandia by the absence of a black submarginal band in the dorsal and by a narrow black submarginal band in the anal fin; male M. mossambica from Lumessi are distinguished from all other Maylandia, except M. aurora, M. chrysomallos, and M. xanthos by the absence of a black submarginal band in the dorsal, a yellow ventral half of the head, breast, and dorsal fin, and a light-blue nape; male M. mossambica from Lumessi population differ from those of M. chrysomallos by a yellow dorsal fin which is light-blue in the latter (Ref. 86409). Maylandia mossambica differs from M. aurora by more vertical bars below the dorsal, 7–9 vs. 6, and from M. xanthos by a shorter lower jaw, 27.9–33.8% of head length vs. 34.6–36.7% (Ref. 86409). Based on the colour pattern, female M. mossambica cannot reliably be distinguished from those of most other members of the Aurora group but have 7 or 8 bars below the dorsal fin vs. 6 bars in M. aurora (Ref. 86409).
