Africa: Widespread in Gabon. It has been collected from the Ogooué basin (excepting its most upper and lower reaches), the Ntem and Ivindo basins, and the Nyanga basin. On numerous occasions, the authors collected this species together with P. simus (Ref. 52344).

Description synthétique Morphologie | Morphométrie

Petrocephalus sullivani is distinguished from all other Petrocephalus species from Gabon by the following characters: 20 to 25 branched rays in the dorsal fin and 24 to 30 in the anal fin; 14 to 20 scales (average 17.5) between the anterior base of the anal fin and the lateral line; mouth clearly inferior (distance between anterior extremityof th esnout and corner of the mouth between 2.7 and 4.4 times in head length; mouth opens under the posterior half of the eye, whereas in P. simus and P. balayi it opens under the anterior half of the eye); large eye (diameter of the eye between 3.0 and 4.1 times in head length, average 3.6); and no sub-dorsal black spot. The EOD is short (216 ms mean duration) with a peak FFT frequency of 9597 Hz. The EOD presents a prominent third phase (P3) with an amplitude of 12.8% of peak-to-peak height. Eye relatively large. Eye diameter between 3.0 and 4.1 times in head length (average 3.5) (Ref. 52344).
