Etymology: Aphyosemion: Greek, aphye, -es, sardine, anchovy + Greek, semeion = mark, signal (Ref. 45335); jeanhuberi: Named in honour of Dr. Jean Henri Huber (Paris), who discovered this species, and also in appreciation of his long-term as well as inestimable contribution to the knowledge of oviparous Cyprinodontiformes (Ref. 116455).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; pelagic. Tropical
Africa: upper Ngounié River, tributary of Ogooué River, and Bibaka River, tributary of Nyanga River, on the southwestern part of the Massif du Chaillu in southern Gabon and southwestern Republic of Congo (Ref. 116455).

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 15 - 16. Diagnosis: Aphyosemion jeanhuberi belongs to the Aphyosemion ogoense species group, which are characterized by presenting dark red margin on dorsal fin and dorsal portion of caudal fin, an asymmetric caudal fin shape, and wide dark red stripes parallel to the caudal fin rays in males (Ref. 116455). Males of A. jeanhuberi can be distinguished from males of the remaining species belonging to this assemblage by theit unique colouration consisting of isolated red dots on the flanks and caudal peduncle over a light blue background, vs. two horizontal red stripes in Aphyosemion ogoense, a wide red middorsal stripe in Aphyosemion louessense, vertical, irregular red bars in Aphyosemion pyrophore, a wide vertical red bar on the central portion of the caudal fin in Aphyosemion caudofasciatum, and horizontal lines in Aphyosemion ottogartneri (Ref. 116455).
Found in small and shallow permanent forest streams (Ref. 116455).
