Abstract
Aphyosemion teugelsi is described from specimens collected in a small creek in the upper Wamba River basin in the southwest of the Democratic Republic of the Congo not far from the Angolan border. This is similar to 400 km outside the known distribution area of the genus. It is distinguished from all other members of the genus Aphyosemion by the combination of broad black margins on all fins in males, a robust lower jaw, a more convex back, a large head with large eyes, a more anterior position of the dorsal fin relative to anal fin, and absence of extensions on the upper and lower caudal fin.
