Pelvicachromis silviae

Is a pdf of the paper available online? All I could find was this abstract:

Lamboj, A. (2013): A new dwarf cichlid (Perciformes) from Nigeria. Cybium, 37 (3): 149-157.

Pelvicachromis silviae, a new cichlid species, is described. It differs from congeners by unique coloration of females and a combination of morphological characters, e.g. greater body depth, shorter snout length, greater eye orbit diameter and several other meristic parameters. The species occurs in the lower Niger River system and seems to represent within the genus a closer relative to P. subocellatus.

Pelvicachromis silviae, une nouvelle espèce de cichlidés, est décrite. Elle se distingue de ses congénères par la coloration unique des femelles et par une combinaison de caractères morphologiques (plus grande hauteur du corps, museau plus court, diamètre de l’orbite plus grand) et par plusieurs autres paramètres méristiques. L’es-pèce se trouve dans le système du bas Niger et, au sein du genre, semble très proche de P. subocellatus.

Thanks for the update, Ted. Hopefully a portent of more description to come? Cybium's website list v.37 n.3 being printed right now. It should be available for sale soon. My guess is that Ted got a 'galley proof' from a friend;) .
