Caption: African freshwater catfish specimen. This freshwater catfish is Synodontis maculipinna. Synodontis is the most widely distributed genus of African freshwater catfish. This species, which is endemic to Tanzania, was collected from the Rufigi River near Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania. It arrived at the Natural History Museum, London, UK in 1922, and was classified and named by John Richardson Norman (1899-1944), an ichthyologist who worked at the museum. The original 1922 specimens include what is known as the type specimen.
