BETTY'S TEA ROOMS
This year we are proud to welcome our guest speaker - Jaap Vlaming
Jaap is a seasoned killi enthusiast and has undertaken a number of trips to the African continent, collecting many species of the genus Aphyosemion.
He will provisionally be presenting 3 talks:-
1) The species of the sub-genus Kathetys (Aphyosemion bamilekorum, bualanum, dargei, exiguum and kekemense).
2) The species of the sub-genus Mesoaphyosemion, or A. cameronense group (Aphyosemion amoenum, cameronense, etsamense, haasi, halleri, maculatum, mimbon, obscurum, raddai).
