Neolamprologus boulengeri is a species of fish in the Cichlidae family. It is endemic to the northern part of Lake Tanganyika, where is found in the waters of Burundi and Tanzania.

As hybridization seems to have played a major role in the radiation of this group, the exact relationships of the present species are obscure. The present species might be quite close to L. attenuatus, or to L./N. hecqui and perhaps L./N. meeli. In the latter case, there would have been hybridization between a L./N. boulengeri female and a L. attenuatus male; while this question is presently unresolved, it can be noted that these two species are quite different in body shape and ecology, but rather similar in details of the color pattern.[1]
