The catfish, Parauchenoglanis ngamensis (Auchenoglanididae), is distributed in the Kasai and upper Zambezi-Okavango basins in southern Africa. The Kasai Basin population can be distinguished from the upper Zambezi-Okavango basins population by a less robust humeral process of the cleithrum, a longer external mandibular barbel, and less pigmentation on the body and fins. A population at Lake Calundo, appears to represent a portion of a cline within the species or a hybrid zone between two forms in the Kasai and upper Zambezi-Okavango basins.
