IS Tyrannochromis Macrostoma here???

We know the Nigriventer are here but was Macrostoma here and it was lost or crossed out or was it actually only Nigriventer here and it was mislabelled ...or.... are there Macrostoma lurking out there?

To me there is definitely a distinct difference and its all to do with the location of the bump/kink on the face profile above the mouth (A.Christyi have this 'bump' bigtime! B))...Nigriventer is close to the mouth...Macrostoma is up pretty much in line with the eye(you can see on the young fish in the pics)....plus Macrostoma are known to be a slightly larger fish....sadly I get the feeling im talking about a tasmanian tiger fish here with these guys... :huh:
