EPIPLATYS CHAPERI SPILLMANNI
Epiplatys chaperi has several subspecies recognized within the hobby. Whether or not each one is a definitive is questionable based on being named for collectors in different locations within the full range. The species appears to range from Ghana to the Ivory Coast.
PERSONAL NOTE: I found no literature separating the varieties of E. chaperi into subspecies beyond location data.
