I think it looks like some of the red cheek that I had. Some stayed showing stripes and no red cheeks while others were dark and their cheeks glowed. Here's a pic. Not the best because this one showed some red in the cheeks but I had ones that wouldn't at all.

Looks very similar to younger Mpimbwe red cheeks.

That was my second guess a female red cheek looking at the pix in the tropheus book by Ad Konings..

I was thinking yellow cheeks. What are the other ones, Ulwile? We may have to do business again.
