This is not a new species, it's A. sp. "Kelleri / Diamond Face"
As I know, you took the wrong photo and you mean the "other" fish, described in this thread: http://www.apistogramma.com/forum/threads/collecting.18659/#post-90103

And that's neither a new species, that's just a new colour morph of A. sp. Kelleri.
So, please don't use a name like A. sp. "Maca" for that.

You can call it A. sp. "Kelleri" (Maca).... nothing else.

(even better would be, you take the name of the location instead a "dedication name" for Albertino Maca Ausber. This is better for scientifically descriptions!)

regards,
Rolo
