What about the bright white spots?
I don't think a fish that spectacular could be found living in the wild, they must have been created through selective breeding and possibily cross breeding.(Even though it mostly resembles a synspilum).

By locale, Lisachromis means that specimens of Vieja synspilum collected from Chiapas, have a different coloration than fish from other collection points.  It's a regional variant.  Another very good example of this is with Aulonocara stuartgranti.  A hybrid is the offspring of two fish of different species (such as a "flowerhorn").  Hybrids are not assigned any binomial nomenclature.
