Previously known as Metriaclima sp. zebra slim. This species is predominantly blue bodied with thick dark blue/black barring (typical BB zebra). The bottom of the face will be the same dark blue/black colour. This species is elongated, however because of its overall size and chunky structure, it does not fit into the elongatus complex. A dominant male will be a bright cobalt/light blue, whilst sub-doms will be a dark blue. Females of this species are OB, with cream coloured bodies.
