Class: Actinopterygii      Diapteron georgiae is another member of the sub-genus found in Gabon  – in the Ivindo river drainage system between Koumameyong and Bélinga, northern Gabon.

     This species may well be the most common member of the sub-genus, but that does not make it common.  There are a few populations found in the hobby in both the USA and Europe.
