Notes Daget: E. bifasciatus: In most of the individuals the number of dorsal finnrays are 8, thus a little higher than in the types of this species. (Note! Possibly E. barmoiensis).

E. annulatus: The dark bars are a little more wide in relation to the lighter areas than at the figure of Boulenger. At certain individuals the last dark bar continue to the posterior extreme of the Anal.

Micropanchax macrurus manni: The live individuals are remarkable by thier blue eyes. (Note! These individuals should possibly be referred to Poropanchax normani)

(Note!): The Scriptaph. species referred to Aphy. liberiense can without much doubt be referred to Scriptaph. roloffi, this is the only Scriptaph. species known from the Freetown peninsula, the individuals from Newton, might either be Scriptaph. roloffi, Scriptaph. chaytori or (Scriptaph. bertholdi ?).
