Micropanchax pelagicus

The Micropanchax pelagicus lives in the benthopelagic, non-migratory, freshwater environment.

I have always thought that Laciris or Micropanchax pelagicus came from Lake Edward. Recently, I have seen notes of L. pelagicus coming from Lake Albert. Have you ever seen this species? Have you ever photographed it? It is one of the lampeyes I am quite curious about. More
