The pungu (Pungu maclareni) is a species of cichlid endemic to Lake Barombi Mbo in Cameroon where it prefers shallow waters of about 1 to 3 metres (3.3 to 9.8 ft) in depth. This species can reach a length of 10 centimetres (3.9 in) SL. It is currently the only known member of its genus. It is threatened because of pollution and sedimentation from human activities. Konia, Myaka and Stomatepia are three other equally threatened genera of cichlids that also are endemic to Lake Barombi Mbo.
