Looks dead-on like Gombi to me (or is that spelled 'Gombe'? noone seems able to agree): http://www.ekkwill.com/lambuesgom.html

If you're referring to "Tanganyika Cichlids in Their Natural Habitat", I have it here in front of me. Didn't think to look until you mentioned it. The ones that look like they may be a match (no polka-dots in the fins, checkerboard patterned flanks) are "Chituta, Zambia" (i.e. Gombe); "Samazi, Tanzania"; and "Moliro, Congo". The pics of the last two aren't great, but if the camouflage patterns on the flank are a good indication, this looks closest to "Moliro, Congo".
